New Brakes Grinding
I am, of course by the post count new to the forum as I have just within the last month bought a white 2000 Bonnie with 41,000 miles on it. It is as loaded as you could get it with leather, the nice sound system, auto climate control, the alloy wheels and a lot of other features that I have grown attached to. I have been reading the posts on this site for a little over a month and have already cleared my headlight corners and tinted the windows. Looking forward to other improvements including dual exhaust. My other play toy is a 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442, black with T-tops which has graduated upon purchasing the Bonneville to my garage queen and I can now drop that gas guzzling 403 in.
Anyway with introductions dispensed with I have a problem that I think I might have the answer but wanted a little advice from the experts here. I recently (two weeks ago) replaced the front pads and rotors with the good Bendix rotors and a set of ceramic rotors (I think the brand is Brake Best). Everything was right in the world until late last week when I noticed a light grinding noise and feeling when stopping. Both the noise and feel really are not noticable until under 10 MPH and then it rears its ugly head. I thought I did everything by book, bought the high quality parts, and I am now having these problems. I am thinking it is the pads, maybe I should have gotten the Raybestos ceramics. What do you all think? Sorry for the long post and great to be in the Bonneville community.
