  2. Suspension / Brakes
    Hey all - Going to do my brakes soon, thought I'd get some suggestions on brake fluid to use. I don't have anything fancy going on, it's a 2009 G8 GT Sports Package with no real change on it. Hit me with it! Thanks!
  3. Suspension / Brakes
    So I installed my new DBA rotors and hawk brake pads. As I was pulling into my driveway today I hear screetching from them. I look at the rotor and notice a ring around it. I believe the bracket holding the brake pad is scratching the rotor. Has anyone else had an issue like this? Is there a...

  8. V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
