changed the front pads this weekend, let me update you.
got new pads. oreillys didnt have ceramic pads for my car, so i bought "almost-ceramic" pads. thats what he called them, and i got a kick out of the term. lifetime replacement. also bought a new 2 ton hydraulic jack and two 2-ton jack stands. had the rotors turned too.
didnt do the backs, apparently those are fun. anyone feel like writing a techinfo on it?
car stops much much better now. im very impressed and pleased. i will be doing the fronts on my own in the future. only problem was, whats the best place to support the car with on the jack stands? pics, anyone? i put them where i thought best, and it looked like it might have been bending, so i moved them immediately.
EDIT: oh, anyone have any tips on breaking the bolts loose, for future reference? special tools?
