I purchased genuine parts from a specialist for $350 Aussie dollars this is about $200 US dollars. The job takes an hour so work out what the dealer is doing to you. I had the dealer install my front rotors and Pads for $100 US and the parts were $200 US. I still have to get the rears done when they are worn out.Dealership replace front brake pad on my last visit for free due to squealing sound. They told me that rear brake need to be replace too. They quoted me 1200 for it. Is it really needed to replace the rotor or it's ok just to replace the pads. Thank you
I find brembos to squeak a lot and it is due to brake dust nothing else. Regular wash with water is there to it.Posted this on an old thread before realizing that there was a new one.
My 2017 RRS V8 Dynamic with the Brembos have started to squeal after 2 months and 6,000 miles, quite loudly I might add. Has anyone here have long-term success with bringing it back to the dealer, or would I have better luck swapping the pads with the Ceramic ones at an independent?
I've been looking for information of the downsides of the ceramic pads over the OEM ones, but not have found any useful information - anyone have info on that?
On the squeak spray, does it affect braking performance at all? Seems that's you spray it behind the pad, rather than on the rotors, but perhaps I'm mis-reading?
