Accelerate to 35 mph then slow down to almost stop 10 times then to 45 mph. Basically what they called out for.

Maybe try it from a higher speed? And how does the rotor look afterwards? Does it look like a good amount of brake pad material on the rotor or were they hot after you were done?

I also installed brake pads and rotors today and i did mine from 60ish to around 20ish a couple of times and tried a bit faster but ran out of room and the rotor were hot.

With my hps pads I did the bedding procedure and the pedal felt weird for 200 or so miles. After that the pedal either got better, or I got used to it.

So much squeaking and thudding after installing the rear sway bar..

Everything is torqued, and triple checked to make sure its all snug.

No noises with the stock RSB. Might just run the stocker.

Fixed my immobilizer anti theft issue. Can't really say what I did other than put my dash all back together. Electrical issues suck! Especially ones that involve PCMs, transmitters, chips, ....

I will never run HPS pads again. I've been through the bedding procedure three times now, and after a couple of days of city driving, I get build-up that causes significant brake judder when I'm slowing down at a mild rate.

I never had this problem with the OE Ferodo pads.

yeah, those HPS pads are basically an downgrade from the OEM pads. and that's why have the GLOC brakes now.

Sounds like you got your rotors too hot and warped them. I just put on centric premium blank rotors and hawk hps pads two weeks ago and they just not started feeling normal. Before they just felt real soft like they weren't biting well. They do have a considerable amount less of brake dust which is really nice.

If you had read my post a little more carefully, you would understand that this is simply not the case.

I wrote, "I've been through the bedding procedure three times now, and after a couple of days of city driving, I get build-up that causes significant brake judder when I'm slowing down at a mild rate."

First, you should know that while I definitely do enjoy the occasional spirited drive, my MS6 spends almost all of its time commuting between home and work, with some highway trips mixed in for good measure. I've never tracked the car, I've never autocrossed the car, and I have never even gotten the brakes heated up to the point where I can smell anything at all. Therefore, it's all but impossible for me to have heated the brakes up to the point where I have warped the rotors.

Second, as I implied earlier, if I scrub the pads off by doing a few hard stop and medium pedal effort stops, the judder disappears completely. However, if I just drive normally, within a couple of days the judder comes back. As a result, it pretty much has to be buildup/chatter of the pads themselves, and again, the rotors couldn't possibly be warped.

I shouldn't mess with the grammar police, but I just had to. Driving normally is obviously different for me than you :-) Sounds like those pads might work for me

Apparently I've been told, I drive like a asshat. Or like I prefer, like I stole it

Speaking of which, has anyone tried painting their rims black so they don't care about brake dust? I've seen ads for that peel off paint.....

Sup guys?

Recently knocked out a new oil change (t6) new transmission fluid change (ford synth) new shifter bushings from corksport, and recently arrived my jbr 88mm rmm, and new ngk one step cooler plugs.

Low budget modding ftw

let me know how you like that 88a. I have mount inserts I'm debating on installing, leaning more towards a legit JBR mount, but more the 70a flavor.

Will do, I heard the vibrations are rougher, but it was cheaper than the other JBR options!

I had a buddy warp brand new rotors by trying to burnish his brakes too much. So yes you absolutely could have done so. I'd take your wheel off and mic the rotor in a few different spots and see if you measure a difference. If you tried to bed then three different times then I'd say it's likely you fucked them up.

Sigh...that could all be true IF THE SYMPTOMS PERSISTED. Instead, they are only present after multiple days of city driving. Ergo, the rotors are clearly not warped.

Logic is not welcome here.

I've heard pretty bad things about HPS pads but I swapped my stoptech street performance setup to HPS 5.0s early this year and have been very happy with the brakes. They're a linear feel unlike stock/stoptech and dust almost none compared to either of those as well. They're also rated for better fade resistance (never had fade with stoptechs on the dragon, have seen issues with other pads on other cars) but I haven't been able to test that. They get a little squeaky at times but it's a minor price to pay IMO.

Hold off with the plugs, you don't need them. They will actually be detrimental to performance at this point.

I had the JBR 88a RMM installed for a while (>30k miles) and other than low throttle vibes and rev down its not too terrible (though there is a definite resonance point around the 2500-3k rpm zone that gets pretty fuckin buzzy)... Definitely a lot more NVH than stock though. FYI I switched to the damond mount recently and it quelled the vibes a little bit, but again, still much more than stock.

IMHO though, the benefits the RMM provides far outweigh the increase in NVH. Also, if you have any plans of modding for more power in the future, a RMM should be one of the first things you swap out, in order to help actually put the power to the ground and make you go fast.

Sounds like I need to read up on plugs one more time. Thought the one step colders were a pretty common upgrade? My plugs are getting fairly old for my taste at 17k miles.

Anyway, rain ruined any chance of modding today! Too much tropics lately.

Yep, way late to the game with installing a RMM. But thats how it goes. I'm slowly moving down the path to a e85 mix.

Definitely don't want step colders if running ethanol.

I just put oem pads and rotors on. Other than the fact they dust up like a bitch stopping wise I have no problems. And like you my compute is usually stop and go in traffic situations and once a week she goes out on the highway

On a relatively stock car you can easily get 60k out of a set of plugs...this isn't 1965. I just replaced mine right over 60k and pulled out stock plugs...never had an issue running them. We did compression on a local's car this past weekend and pulled fomoco plugs at over 120k. They definitely looked old and should have been replaced but his car was running without issue.

Not really what I did to my car today, but what I did with my car.

Had to do a 60 mile round trip for work, and got to play a little with a Roush Mustang. I really love these cars at highway (and higher) speeds :-)

After talking cars with a guy at work with a custom 80's chevy truck I finally drove my car to work and rolled him on the way home. I don't talk about it much, but when I do I get the impression people think I'm blowing smoke. Before the run he'd ask if I'd consider my car rice, or had a fart can. Now he's talking about an LS twin turbo build, haha.

Hey, everyone moves at their own pace... I knew right away I wanted to wrench on the car so as soon as I could after I bought it, I got AP, RMM and HPFP internals lol

Yeah, I seem to go in stages. Not a couple months after I bought it, I had a TBE, SRI, TIP and tune finished. Probably should have made room in the budget for the RMM but I am finally getting around to it!

Installed 3 inch catless downpipe, ultimate racing 3 inch cat back exhaust and corksport turbo inlet hose. Running full stage 2 now. 3 inch turbo back catless exhaust is pure heaven.

Went to my car after parking along the street in a pretty sketchy area of my city. Found a nice scratch that my nail catches from the front bumper all the way to the rear bumper on the drivers side. Pretty pissed. Not sure if it was someone who keyed/brushed against it on a bike/ or the narrow unkempt roads I drove through today for work

Got my JBR Rear motor mount on, it's an 88. Vibrates sorta hard low RPMs, seems to have increased the exhaust tone quite a bit also?

Driveability is for sure improved, just makes me shift down more often so stay out of the vibes.
