Bad Brakes Please Help

I went to get my brakes checked today because they were squeaking, pulsating, and just felt weird... There I was told my brakes were warped and I needed all new rotors and pads... the quoted $650 which i think is wayyy to much...

What kind of brakes and pads do you guys recommend?

Re: Bad Brakes Please Help

I got my new rotors and pads from R1 Concepts.

Premium Slotted on the front and Premium Solid on the rear with Hawk HPS pads all round.

I'd certainly recommend them...


The pulsating feel you are describing is a sign your rotors are warped tho so new discs will be required.

Linky

They are traders on here IIRC, so have a look for a discount code...

They do bite a lot better so I'd say so yes, although the previous discs/pads were absolutely screwed.
