I guess the crappy contact the pads were making with the rotor is why it had a spongy pedal. It's really a head scratcher as to why the rotors got the way they were. I'm going to get some photos uploaded some where so I can post them here. Any suggestion on where to put them so they can be viewed in the post?

I'm not sure why the fluid was low. That's probably another Saturday afternoon. I'll have to make sure the driver jeeps a close eye on the level.

Thanks all for the help
Thats great you got the brakes fixed. I would flush out the old brake fluild & use new fluild.

If the outer wire anti-rattle bails are not properly installed the caliper can raise up on one side to push crooked and the spongy pedal FYI. Screwy wear as a result.
