    currently one of my suppliers is having some type of relationship problems with centric. So my prices have gone up a tad bit. I do have another supplier that really competes and shipping is super duper fast.

    Thanks Oli for the love.

    I'm still around and always a text a way. I know i haven't been on here much, but you guys can always reach me at anytime.

    Make sure you bed these pads. If you don't your rotors will eventually feel "warped" and shimmy all over the place. Do 10 or so 60-5mph stops at 90% brake force all in a row, then make sure you drive for about 15 minutes at 60mph to properly cool them back down. Repeat as necessary until you get some good smooth pad transfer, which should look like a nice slightly grey look on the rotor face (it should NOT be super shiny like chrome, that means you have no pad transfer). Then you'll be golden and have nice strong smooth stops for many moons.

    These pads need help with laying down good pad transfer. Other street pads don't, but they aren't as performance oriented either.

    Not sure about Ray. I got my Stoptech from TireRack (use affiliate link).

    Any chance the StopTech street performance would be causing heat spots on my Centric rotors? I just got my alignment done at the dealer and they said the pulsation when braking from 30-40 mph could be from heat spots on the rotor. They also said I might have three bent wheels, so I'll get those looked at elsewhere.

    Anyway, I got home and there is just a slight lip on the edge of my rotors. Could the pads have already worn the rotors down? It's been 2 years and 20,000 miles since I installed them. Could I have done the bed in process incorrectly?

    I haven't had a chance to get the wheels off and really look at them, just trying to figure out if I need a new set of rotors and pads on all four corners now, or if there was a rookie tech who misdiagnosed the pulsation.
