    Just figured I'd put this out there in case anyone experiences soft brake pedal. The Guide pins are often over looked. Case in point, twice by me, twice by the dealership. Finally smacked myself in the head and took the rear pins out to find out they were dry as a bone. (changed all 4 rotors and...

    Hey guys, On our ‘06 GS, we’re doing the front brakes over. On the backing plates (aka splash shields, dust shields, etc) there are the two main bolts that go through it (brake caliper bracket bolts). No problem there. But there is one small 10mm bolt as well, which of course immediate broke...
  7. Problem Reports
    I had one of my brake pads seize up today, luckily caught it before it did any damage to the rotors. I think the cause is from the Rubber Bushing being torn, the bottom slider was basically dry. I lubed it up good and replaced the pads, but I don't know how long it will last without a good seal...

    Hello 4Gers! I had a question about interior painting. I wanted to paint a few panels red in my 4G to match my Mitsu Pure Red exterior. I thought about color matching, however cans of Mitsu Pure Red are $20 per can, and I'll probably need a few cans + clear coat, which adds up. Not to mention...
  10. Problem Reports
    I may have a wheel issue. Noticed a pulsing hum sound and i can really hear it when I ease off the gas. I took my wheel off before and noticed no grease on the brake pad areas that contact the caliper and the counter weights on my rims are gone. I'm hoping its one or both is the issue or maybe a...

    Okay so working on my brakes today and I just had a quick question about the caliper guide pin bolts so I believe it's the lock pin, does that always go on top on both sides in the front?

    This is my first time modding a car, so it's kind of a slow process. Definitely a learning experience. I tried to include a few pics from the day I brought her home, one exterior and one of under the hood (DIRTY), as well as some pics of what I've done since. Engine/Exhaust -DC Sports CAI...

    What color brake caliper cover would you choose for my car? Or none at all. Car is noted as gray on VIN. But most think its a shade of blue.
  14. Problem Reports
    I was doing a pad change for my brakes earlier today. Did the driver side front no problem like always. Got to the passenger side front and the lower slider pin bolt would not budge. Last brake and rotor change was done at pep boys (took the lazy way out) so I figured they put a little more than...

    So I'm thinking once I get my new wheels put on I'll likely want my calipers painted. I'm thinking something similar to ultra red pearl or maybe a silver. Anyone know of any close to ultra red pearl or a good metallic silver?
