Are these stock brakes?? Replaced Pads, Rotors, Drums, Shoes + Hardware. Around 4 years ago, It is not a daily driver so tons of life left in the pads and shoes. Had fluid flushed in 2009. Zero Issues. And the only change was to add MM SS hoses? Yes. But I had to do some emergency travel after I took the passenger side hose off and it was 3 weeks before I was able to install the MM passenger side hose. How were the brakes before the change? Were they good? Pedal was good but never really paid attention to it. What banjo bolts did you use? The ones supplied in the kit? Any leaks? I used the MM Banjo Bolts in the kit. Zero fluid leaks anywhere. If you double pump the brakes, does the pedal feel improve? Yes In other words, find a good long straight road and get up to speed and then get on the brakes. After a few seconds, do a quick release and reapply of the brakes....basically a double pump. Does the pedal feel firmer? Yes.
