Re: shuddering brakes on ef ghia

Its a apparantly a common problem with EF's I was told. Also the Dba's are prone to shudder after about 6 months when new. I was told by my mechanic to get Pro-tech rotors for any EF as they are balanced better and have supposedly better characteristics than Dba with no brake shudder what so ever. And he's had these rotors for over a year now, doing the same ammount of braking.

Dont flame me for this, this is what I've been told from experience!

As for the Pro-tech brand, I've never heard of it, its new to me and Im keen to find out more!
