Hey how are you,I will try to help you with this issue

if the pedal is dropping down ,you need to check for leaks around the wheels and at the Brake master cylinder under hood , the master cylinder is hooked up to your brake booster

No leaks. Pedal just travels to low but once it brakes it ok. It like bad adjusted brakes on drum brake systems but I don't think there is any adjustments.
