    I can suggest check piston movement and pin sliders? Also pads aren't jammed in anchors, I had to grind a lot of rust on mine before I had a freely moving pad. Maybe they just need more bedding? Idono, you should have the ability to lock up wheels, even with an average pad imo.
  8. Police brake pads, stock brakes

    Suspension / Brakes
    I did notice a world of difference, but I have no idea what pads were on my car before. (Just bought the car) I still stand by what I said because I can easily lock up my wheels under braking. Possibly they are not fully conformed to the rotor and need for bedding, or factory (and i do mean...

    Ive used both HAWK HPS and HP+ on my skyline. HPS are horrible when cold; almost went through a stop sign. HP+ on the other hand are fantastic(but very dusty and noisy); insane bite when cold and worked well on lapping days untill i boiled my DOT4 fluid. I changed to Bosch 5.1 and was fine the...
