Brakes

Back about 50K I decided to install new brakes on front and back. They original pads were still in pretty good shape. I cleaned the rotors they looked good and were not worn to bad. I broke in the brakes by the book. The last 5K the brake are jus horrible. Take a lot of pressure to stop and they just don't feel good. There is plenty of pad. Just wondering if I should of replaced the rotors too? When we first bought the Borrego the Brakes were Awesome. Not much pedal pressure to stop you in hurry. Should I replace everything and start over? Thanks Steve69

Im going to install new rotors and pad on all 4 and see what happens. If the problem still is there Im going to take it to the shop. Maybe there's some air in the Brake Lines too.

Thanks
