    What is all the bitching and moaning about with the brakes? All I needed was a 15mm wrench, a C-clamp, needle nose pliers, and a soft mallet to knock the rotor off. No 55torx or allen wrench. I had both sides done in about a 30-45 minutes.

    Whatd you do to them? Lol, just change the pads and shoes? :dunno:

    I thought you bought a nice big brake system. :p

    How did that big ass paint chip on your door come along? I missed the end result?

    Did front pads and rotors.

    I go to see the insurance adjuster tomarrow about the big ass paint chip. It turns out that the door looks like it was pelted with stone from a lawnmowere, according to the guy who did the estimate. That means I can get it covered under my comprihensive. It probably happened when I took the car to Florida in the begining of March.

    I will update the situation tomarrow.

    And they suck! Definitly should have gone bigger. That will be my next upgrade.
