Thanks Joe. I wanted the value for the two bolts that hold the caliper in place. What is the slide bolt? I was reading about different brake kits and I read about "bedding the pads" on Stoptech's web site. I guess they call breaking in "bedding the pads and rotors..Originally posted by NJSubieTech
If you mean the bolts that mount the caliper to the knuckle (the 17s) they are 59 ft-lbs. If you mean the slide bolts (the 14s) they are 19.5 ft-lbs.
Im also not sure what you mean by "bedding the pads." If youre just asking how you get them in there - I usually bring them in at a right angle and press one side of the clip, then push down and pivot them in.
If you mean braking them in on the car - I do this:
Get up to about 40 mph - apply very light brake pressure until you come to a complete stop.
Go to 50 mph - reapeat with a little more pressure.
Go to 50 again and apply heavier pressure - try to stop in about 100 ft.
Go to 60 and apply as much pressure as you can without locking up the wheels or activating ABS, stopping as quickly as possible.
