Brembos Are Fantastic

Well it took my cousin and I 5 hours to put Brembo brakes all four corners of my 09 G8 GT.

I bought the brakes from a member here last year and finally put them on this past Saturday.

I love the brakes and I would highly recommend the MOD. I am very satisfied.

I am running 20' HMC Rims by 8.5.

The brakes are ceramic and work great.

The only modification was cutting some of the brake dust shield but that wasn't bad at all.

Now.....I had my G8 for 2 years and have noticed even with stock wheels a vibration between 55-70mph.

With the HMC Wheels I am running BFG 255 35 18.

I bought the tires from discount tires and have taken my car back to them twice for rebalance issues.

I still have the vibration problem.

I have done the search on the forum and it looks like it could be the LCA's...…

Am I pretty close on this assessment ?

My 09 G8 has 105k miles and has the original suspension.

My car drives well but will a new suspension fix the vibration problem?

Thanks guys.

The brembos are working fantastic.

Love them!

Best MOD!

Now I purchased new structs, shocks, and lower control arms in seeing if this fixes my vibration over 50mph.

I will update once completed.
