WOW, I just did a caliper change on both front wheels this weekend!
Looks like someone put your brake pads in wrong TOO!!!
Inner brake pads are supposed to have the little numbs on the outer ends of the pad.
Outer brake pads are supposed to have the little numbs on the inner most location.
Looks like installer put the inner numbs on the inner brake pad location, which impacts into the piston and causes piston distortion. Ruined calipers.
I just did the stock v6 dual piston caliper change. It stops great! I can lock up the tires if I need to.
100mph to 0mph brake test results in no brake fade.
so why update to cobra brakes?
