Re: Akebono Brake Upgrade?
my experience with the teves has been decent. I believe a culprit for the warping is not greasing the slide pins. The pins are not completely enclosed by a rubber grommet or bushing like most all brake calipers which can lead to rusting, freezing pins; eventually warping rotors because a portion of the slide pin is exposed to weathering. That being said i generally pull mine and grease them with synthetic brake caliper grease every Oil change. My braking is even. The pedal is a touch spongy, but very effective overall.
