    Hello All, I have noticed more now than previously after installing 4 pot brembos on all 4 corners that when I brake hard, ABS feels like it is engaging. The ABS and TC light do not turn on or give me any warnings, and it happened on stock brakes, front brembos only, and now with all 4 brembos...

    Okay, so here's the deal. I have a 2009 G8 GT with 58K miles on it. I bought it new in 2009 and have it been the only owner. I purchased brand new Centric Premium rotor blanks and Posi Quiet ceramic pads from AutoAnything and my buddy and I installed them a little over a week ago. This is for...

    I'm replacing the brakes this fall before winter comes. I'm probably going to go with Hawk pads but can't decide on rotors. My ride is just a daily driver and I don't do any racing, but I want to upgrade the brakes a little bit from stock. Would it be best to upgrade the pads and get stock...

    I started hearing the squealer on my rear brakes while I was on vacation and just got home and took them apart to find the rear brake pads are shot. Well, specifically the RR tire inside brake pad was down to the squealer but the others looked approx 1/2 worn. I take it the caliper sliders...

    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...

    My front rotors were warped bad and my break pads were gone; So as the title says, I just purchased the Build Your Own DBA & Hawk Package from MarylandSpeed. I got the 4000 series slotted and drilled XS rotors with the Hawk Performance Ceramic pads. Is anyone else running this setup? If so any...

    I have a 2009 G8 GT and wish to replace the OE rotors with Disk Brake Australia rotors...having trouble confirming do-ability of getting DBA on the car and the compatible product. Anyone have any insights into this?:judge:driving:

    Alright, I've done a lot of research for some time now and the Baer 6-piston brakes for the front are about the best (cost - benefit) brake upgrade I can do here in Calgary... Even upgrading to 04-07 CTS-V calipers, with rotors, pin kits, pads, and shipping and customs fees included, comes far...

    So I had to do a lot of driving through downtown Detroit last Friday. It had just rained and there was a lot of standing water, plus the roads in Detroit are absolutely awful. I was driving for 3 hours, splashing through puddles, and going over some unavoidable potholes. After the third hour...

    Alright, so I know a lot of you guys on here used to have a grand prix before upgrading and my brother in law is working on his rear calipers and is having a hell of a time getting the E-brake apparatus off. Does anyone know on here how to get the E-brake cable off the caliper so he can change...

    Looking for heavy duty rotors to upgrade syst just warped my second set of rotors. Possibly upgrade pads too bit right now looking for heavier/better rotors.
  15. Suspension / Brakes
    Well, My g8 gt had a ton of suspension upgrades when I bought it, the brakes are squeaking and that is one of my biggest pet peeves, it has drilled and slotted rotors on it (brand unknown), and I'm wondering what the best pads to buy for those rotors would be. I want QUIET pads, with little to...

    My GT never squeaked. My GXP started at like 5k miles, so i replaced the fronts with Hawk ceramics. Now im squeaking again! Only at like 10% braking, less or more and they dont make any noise. If i keep it at the squeaking point, as the car slows down enough, i can hear the noise as a pulse...
