Thanks for the info JC, I actually asked the service manager at my dealer what he'd recommend for an upgrade. He said the AU 1, yes series 1, were the best of the lot
And I said I'd heard the DBA and bendix was a good combination, he said the stocko ones were better and advised against it.
I need to work it out soon as the brakes just don't feel safe to me, the car still stops ok, just not as well as it used to. I even had trouble locking it up in the wet (off the road on disused wet bitumen)
The problem is, I drive my fathers series 2 on occasion and the brakes on it are FAR better than my AU1 but mine used to be much better in comparison.
I'm pretty sure there is something wrong with my brakes, maybe the booster or something? The pedal feel in inconsistent sometimes the brakes do nothing for almost all of the travel then you push hard at the bottom, sometimes there's more pressure behind the pedal with a better progressive brake feel, more like the series 2.
The dealer told me my brakes are fine although I think that means my pads and discs aren't worn out.
Also any idea what a kinda scraping/grinding noise when braking and the car is almost stopped?
The brakes still stop the car, just don't instill me with confidence and so something has to be done. I drive all sorts of cars and mine would be up there vying for worst brakes, even the brakes on my mothers Hyundai are better. . .
Thanks in advance
