    New Brakes install!

    More pics to come,

    well, I am replacing my calipers as you can see, found out that one of my pistons seized up and had torn boots and was causing the shaking and vibration, also noticed my brake fluid was really nasty, so got new synthetic DOT 3 brake fluid and got new calipers, only 100$ with turning in my old calipers. So looks like I finally finished my brake upgrade with new pads rotors and calipers, if the pulsation in my brakes still persist, then it mean im going to go lathe my rotors. Wish me luck in hopeing it was just my calipers!



    yea and my front tie rod bushings are going bad too...damnit!

    I was going to go with DOT 4, but oh well maybe later, I put them on and it helped a lot with the braking but the rotors have run out on them from the bad calipers so it still kinda sucks on the vibrations on the pedal but it grabs a lot harder now.

    ..got 25000 kilometers on my 01..I'm getting pulse at high speed..never been apart..so maybe time for new pads and rotors..since turning them seems pointless, will check fluid as well..check calipers as well, a month to go before out of storage..any ideas on what to buy and where..gm stock ok?..or is there better for the money....all replies appreciated..P.S do like to put her trough the paces once in a while..got the 6 speed..also due for rear gearlube and coolant flush otherwise she's pristine..thanks..

    These are very good, not too expensive and the company will ship fast as well. Great customer service.

    thanks, I still want a few drill and slots to show them off, so I might go with those later down the road but with drills or slots.

    I could make that happen.
    2 rules:
    1. you stall... out
    2. any dammage... out + repair.
