PowerStop aren't cheap.WhiteTegRacer said:ahaha "pepeboys" :lol2
i heard it sux,, brakes are very important item in your car, never go cheap on them, cheap brakes pads can damage ur rotors at the same time
Nissin is what acura uses for thier facotory calipers. Those big spoon calipers are just rebadged Nissin calipers.WhiteTegRacer said:i just heard it sux, so i stayed away from it, i would recommend something like nissin or any japanese brand brakes
most likely its either your brake lines are leaking or not enough brake fluid
That is the proper way to do it. Brake sqeel is the most common complaint from people. To stop/reduce the sqeel, you must apply it between the pistons and the pads/shims.playahwitgame said:well this is the thing i noticed after i was done doing them........i put that ant squeel shit on outside of the shim, not between the shim and the pad. ive done brake work b4 but have never used that lube, it came with the pads so i used it and apperently did it wrong, could that be the cause?
And how much do you think Brembo Blanks run for? Not that expensive either. And how much do you think pads have to be to be considered good quality? Tire Rack sells Hawk pads for about $50-60, and they are not that bad of a pad.playahwitgame said:i read 2 places after i installed them that its between the shim and backside of pad.......lets see what other people think.........and for the record, i dont think they arent good quality, i mean they were 64.99 pads
Yes, always spray it down with brake clean before you install the pads on. Put them on backwards and spray on the rotors. Turn them around correctly and spray them on the front side. That should do it.nfscg said:i know alot of aftermaret companies make you take off a protective film from the rotors with brake cleaner,did you skip that step?
and hows the finish on the rotor?you dont want it to be too smooth
Spray WD-40 on it and let it sit for for anywhere around 10-20 minutes. Slightly bang on it if you feel like it. It'll come off rather easy after the WD-40 penetrates it.playahwitgame said:i didnt put on the rotor yet, had trouble getting off those 2 screws, any tips thatll make it a bit easier? and i dint wanna bang on em 2 hard, i did it the job using the jack that came with the car.
I was talking about the pads. Hawk brake pads? Please reread post. :rolleyesplayahwitgame said:i was talking about the pad, but stop arguing, ytour getting off subject
The hawks/brembos came w. instructions on how to break them in. Just got my baby cleaned... about to go break them in one time around the beltway!.hobie237 said:you have to wear them in so that the bumps and ridges on the pads match the rotors... it takes some miles of careful driving and some hard stops... they dont just work right out of the box
