The stoptechs alone made a world of difference in stopping power without brake fade. Youll enjoy it. Dont forget to bed the rotors and pads in correctly for the best performance. Stoptech has instructions on their site.

I'm starting to lose faith in my mechanic. He said they wouldn't need to be bedded.

Rut row. Yeah, the rotors need to be seasoned and the pads bedded. Technically its best to install the new rotors, season them, then install the pads and bed them. I wonder how the dealership does it when new pads and rotors are installed...

Can't wait to see the drop tomorrow.

Its something to the effect of drive at 60mph and make as hard a stop as possible down to 10mph without locking up the tires. Without stopping completely accelerate back to 60 and repeat. Supposed to do it something like 10 times in a row to get em hot then ride at 60 for a minute or so and cool em down and repeat the process one more time.

Okay,

I figured they would. Its just rained about 7 inches here over the last few days. I did not want to be going 60 in the rain and slowing to ten quickly. Even without locking it up.

Got the suspension on. Come to find out it was not complete. Took hours to get it installed and now it creaks when I turn left any ideas?

I suppose that could be a possibility. The sound is coming from the front though I do believe. I was not able to get an alignment yet. I plan on having the alingment done this afternoon.

Id just oil up everything that moves on the front suspension and see if that helps. Everything is at different angles than its used to being now and may be flexed into a spot that needs some lubrication.

Yeah,

I've taken the day off from work and me and my mechanic will troubleshoot. On a side note on the drive to the mechanics there were plenty of curves and turns. No popping thus far but still pulling pretty hard to one side.
