you will need to replace the brake package and snubber to fix this and its #18, #21,#22 and #23 in this breakdown but this isnt something you can do ,, you will have to get a tech to come out and replace the parts ,,, its spring loaded and can harm you pretty bad without the special tool to take it apart ,, the tool cost over $150 and if you bought it you would only use it once ,,,, thanks and here is the link to the parts / larry
