I had noticed that on extreme braking (from higher speeds on the highway and track) that the response was diminished and the brakes seemed to almost "grind" a bit. I thought maybe the ABS was kicking in a little too hard at first but my instinct, and experience, with my Mustangs told me not to guess.
Since we had a rain-out on AER Manufacturing's show last Saturday (rescheduled for 5/8/10) I took that opportunity to take her up to Bankston Arlington (prev. Texan) for a complimentary brake inspection. Ends up the front pads are shot, the front rotors are warped and the rear pads are down to 4mm. So... no paint and no rims right now. Baby needs some brakes.
I just bought some ceramic brake pads on American Muscle:
- Hawk Performance Ceramic Brake Pads (2005+ Mustang GT/V6 Front Pair) $94.99
- Hawk Performance Ceramic Brake Pads (2005+ Mustang GT/V6 Rear Pair) $79.99
