Your brake pedal feels soft, one reason for this could be
Air in the brake system. Bleed the brakes again.
You probably have air in the brake hydraulic line. Bleed the air out of the brake lines.
There was no Caprice in 2004...
Usually when a brake pedal feels more stiff than usual, there is a vacuum leak. The brake lines probably should be bled.
Try bleeding your brakes. If there is air in the system it can give a spongy feeling to your brake pedal and require you to pump your brakes and/or put your brake pedal to the floor.
Could be low on fluid, or your shoes are worn. See a mechanic
depending where the leak is, yes! to get the air out of the lines and not have a spongy pedal
The brake fluid reservoir is usually located in the engine compartment next to the firewall close to the steering column. Remove the cover from the reservoir and fill to the proper level with your vehicle's recommended fluid type. If the brake pedal feels spongy or goes all the way down to the floorboard, you may need to bleed the brake lines.
Your brakes would feel 'spongy' - in that, it takes more pressure on the pedal than usual for them to operate fully (if at all !)
If you break pedal is pulsing but is not soft or spongy, that sounds like the rotors on your truck are warped and they need to be turned. My suggestion would be take your truck to a local brake shop and have them take a look.
It is above the brake pedal not under it. Follow the brake pedal bracket all the way up and you will see the brake pedal switch.

Apart from the usual air in the brake system that requires bleeding (note that there are up to 3 separate bleed screws on the brake master cylinder alone for master, ABS and TRC if fitted), a corroded and seized sliding pin in the front disc brake may not allow the brake calliper to slide as designed. A tell-tale sign is when the first application of brakes feels spongy and the next application immediately after the first has a firmer feel. (New dust boots and sliding pins for early LS400 do fit early SC400 and Soarers).

It probably means that you need to visit a mechanic. Soft brake pedal feel can mean that air has gotten into the fluid lines. There could be other issues like worn-out pads or rotors.
When you push the pedal further to make your car stop. When you hear a grinding noise when brakes are applied. When the vehicles pulls left or right when brakes are applied. When the brake fluid reservoir is low or empty. When you feel a pulsation in the brake pedal when brakes are applied. When the brake pedal feels mushy when brakes are applied.

It would be the rubber pad that sits on your brake pedal. Unless they were referring to brake pads, which are the pads which enables your vehicle to stop by pressing the brake pedal.
manualy lift brake pedal to see if they go out. if so check spring at pedal

Hardness in the brake pedal can because by low brake fluid. Air in the brake lines can also cause the pedal to push hard.
Usually that would be caused by a faulty brake light switch connected TO the brake pedal. If the brakes work the pedal is probably ok.
