    tips on new brake setup

    i'm going to be putting new pads, stainless brake lines, and solo bleeders on my z pretty soon and was wondering if you guys have any advice. i've done brakes before but is there anything different on the 4th gens. i'll also have my rotors turned and am going to replace all the fluid with dot 4 synthetic. thanks

    My only tip is don't waste the time turning the stock rotors and put some new ones on. They would just warp in another 300 miles anyway!

    I havn't seen one 4th gen with stock rotors that aren't warped. If your not warped then you shouldn't have to.
