    right front wheel shows more dust.

    New pads, rotors and caliper pins all around about 5k ago. just noticed it because its the first time I have let it go more than a few days without a wash. I'm guessing I should bleed them any other suggestions?

    if its break dust it could be u need to adjust one of the pads, it could be touching the rotor slightly before the other side does creating more dust because its touching more.

    Had that happen to me on another vehicle. Def. good idea to check this.

    Were they expensive pads? Either way, one of them could have chunks taken out of it and is now breaking down faster.

    I had this happen with my ceramic pads on the driver front.

    I concur.....probably a sticky piston(s)

    Or you didn't use enough grease & have a stuck caliper pin.....easiest thing to check

    I'm thinking it may be the pins. i replaced them all not sure if you remember the crusty brake job i had to do on this poor neglected z. I had to torch every single one out they wrre rusted siezed. Car doesn't pull under braking and otherwise brakes strong. They are the cheapo ceramic pads from gm. I have overabused them with spirited driving (last night) and they do fade awfully fast (2-3 hard stops then cya...)

    I got on her hard last night and heat cycled them and then let them cool with some highway blasts. Im wondering it maybe it was an issue with spraying a but of zaino on the wheels when I detailed her. I tried to get them up to temp tp burn anything off. I'll wait till after this wash to see if theyre even again.

    Yeah, you have to make sure you clean the pin holes enough.

    If something is sticking, you'd think they'd pull. Odd
