Default Look mom, I can STOP now

Finally got to doing front pads today.....really needed them!! My car feels like it back to normal again. I took the 2-400pounds(?) of speaker out of the trunk...no more saggy butt, did an oil change and did the pads....feels like a totally different car!! In a good way!

Yeah but when the brakes use to heat up I couldn't stop very well AT ALL!! Much better now!! Of course having all that weight out of my trunk also might have helped a bit!!

Look from the wear on the pad that you may have had a slight amount of rotor warp.. Did you have the rotors turned or replaced?

What brand were those pads?

I noticed with the Bendix Titanium pads I do not have the Brake fade that was present with my last set... And iirc these are riveted to the backing instead of being glued..

I have had good luck with the Bendix pads and rotors thus far..

They're Delco pads....$37? I was gonna go ceramic but seeing how i'm not putting on my wheels this year i'm not worried about brake dust! And yes I do have a slight warp in the rotor....don't know what kind....couple years new. Doesn't really bother me much right now
