While I'm putting more power to the wheels with all of my recent upgrades, I think it's finally time for me to address my brake issues. I figure replacing the entire ball of wax (new pads and rotors all around) should cure all issues, but I want to make sure.
First, rear rotors' contact area is dull, both sides of the car. Temp check (ouch!) after daily driving indicates not full contact. The rotors are warm, but only slightly. When compared to the fronts...well, I don't want to touch them. Know what I mean? Pads seem OK with some life left. No squeals or wear indicators touching the rotor.
Second, while braking fairly hard, front brakes vibrate pretty badly. I suspect warped rotors. This hopefully should be an easy fix.
While braking, the car does dip down in the front a bit (slightly), indicating that the rear brakes aren't biting in as hard as they should. But would simply replacing the pads take care of this? Can a rotor become glazed and prevent a pad from fully biting in?
All calipers seem OK as I did a cleaning/lubing/painting session all around last year. Brake fluid was also flushed and replaced and all air bled out.
Please lend a little help for my brake issues as I have described. Thanks.
