Rear brake smell
I just put on a baer brake kit with hawk pads. They have been on the ext for around 500-1000 miles now and Everytime I park my rear brakes smell like something is burning. I sometimes smell it at traffic lights aswell. I have never put aftermarket brakes on a car before so that is why I am wondering, is this burning smell normal?

Re: Rear brake smell
Did the kit come with rotors? There may have been a protective coating for storage that is burning off.
