Wow, it needed that.
So I did the rear brakes on my car yesterday, finally. I planned on doing a full write up on the procedure, but when I ran in to some stupid, that went out the window.
At any rate, I went for ACDelco Durastop shoes, and ACDelco Advantage drums. Suffice it to say, the car stops awesome now! I had no idea it would make such a difference! one thing I did notice however, it seems like the previous owner may have taken a trip with the E-Brake on, because the drums were horribly out of round, and the shoes were cracked and cooked. Not only that, but it has also cut down the nosedive, which I had attributed to old front struts.
If the car stops this good, I can't imagine how ceramic out front could make it any better.
