I just plopped 260 dollars on the ol capital one credit card.
I was wondering why my car, with 45k miles on it, was needing rear brakes in 05. Well, the question has been answered in 07… 4 months shy of exactly two years. the same rear brake pad is almost down to the backing plate. Basically, my rear caliper keeps seizing the piston onto the pads and keeping them on the rotor. meaning it’s just been shredding away at it. Never noticed how much brake dust was on the INSIDE of my rim.
So, I figured as long as I’m redoing my brakes… I might as well do it right.
260 dollars later I have Hawk HPS pads and Brembo blank rotors on the way. (aftermarket upgraded pads/rotors)
Next stop: finding some replacement rear calipers for a 2000 Honda Civic Si. Autozone wants 67 dollars for EACH ONE, plus the 44 dollar refundable core charge… theives…
