    Just did the front brakes

    Well, the weather is 50ish so I decided to do my front brakes. To my suprise, the rotors were smooth and shiney but, I had them mic'd and they were underspec. Between that and the pads were getting alittle thin, thats why I noticed alittle bit of shuddering while braking.

    I bought new rotors to go along with the new pads and now the braking is great.

    I will probably flush out the brake system with new fluid at some point in time during the summer.

    Now its on to changing out the struts to get a decent ride back. I noticed some leakage on my front struts while doing the brakes. I know that passive struts will never duplicate the air-ride, but it will be alot better than what I have now.

    That's awesome. Glad to hear it went well for you. Let me know how the fluid swap goes for you.
