Tell you please help me?

A: Hello - to respond to your email question, ...

Hello - to respond to your email question, we need a little more information regarding the problem with stopping your vehicle, and what work might have already been done. Since this is obviously a huge safety issue, perhaps an inspection by a mobile, professional mechanic, like YourMechanic, who can come to your location to inspect your truck, would be helpful. If so, I would recommend having a Brake Safety Inspection completed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to diagnose this problem, get an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
