I did all the brakes on my EL on the weekend. New standard DBA rotors and ultimates all round. The anchors work heaps better now but my front wheels are getting dirtier and dirtier everyday. I couldn't justyfy the cost of putting the DBA slotted on as it's a street car and all it will really do is just make you go through pads quicker. There's not much benefit for the use of the vehicle IMHO...adviliax mortus said:thanks grunter, but i don't think i'll need it anytime soon.
ok, i'll give it a go anyway! hehe
my breakes are up for replacement soon, so if i have to get the rotors machined i'll rather get new slotted DBA rotors for the money.
I cant see them helping you stop any better. You'll need bigger discs for that....adviliax mortus said:martin
sweet! thanks mate! so basically, DBA rotors should just bolt str8 on, no mods required?
i'm using ultimates right now but with standard ford rotors and i need more braking power... the standard brakes are simply not adequate for my driving style so i have to try other avenues. plus, i've got a bit of a discount on the slotted rotors (front) and solid rotors (rear) so the cost shouldn't be an issue. let me put it this way - two front rotors (slotted) and two rears (solid) should cost me less than what machining cost me last time i had it done! i think... i can't find the invoice to check...
