Default Black Diamond rotors & pagid fast pads?

Hi all,

I'm in a dilemma and would like your suggestion.

looking at some new discs and brake pads for the car. Car stops better than before after changing fluid (thanks guys). BUt still feels insufficient.

So is it wise to get the black diamond grooved discs and new sport brake pads or just get the pads itself? What would be the cheapest & best way? should i buy the discs and the pads together or pads first discs later?

Thanks

Des

Hi Des,If the rotors are ok and have not been turned ,Just get pads.Lube up the yoke and brake hardware and adjust . Save your caliper money for some Hi test fuel and see what you got.May be all thats needed to satisfy. Later, Pat

Hey Pat,

Sorry for the lack of technical knowledge ops: but what does it mean if the rotors have not been turned? How would one check if the rotors are OK?

Hi Des,Turned means resurfaced to make them run true . (made thinner on a machine)If they pulsate upon application then they should be replaced before you install the new pads.Saab pads are to thin to be of much good once they are warped .Pat
