Honda Accord 2000 brakes maintainance
we own 2000 accord lx 5 speed. Right now we have 85,000 miles on odometer. The only problematic area with the car so far had been front brakes. At about 45,000 miles the new pads had been replaced by a local garage. Before replacement I could feel a little of vibrations coming from the wheels under hard braking. The garage replaced pads and turned the rotors. After about 2-3,000 miles the vibration returned. I had the same mechanic turned the rotors once again which fixed the problem for about 10,000. Today I bought a set of new rotors at $60 each at Auto Zone and new metallic pads and replaced them myself. The job was relatively easy. The only problem I had was to find torque specs for a caliper holding bolts. If anybody knows them could you please let me know?
I considered purchasing performance rotors and pads, but almost all of them require at least 16" rims. Did somebody find performance rotors, drilled or slotted, for standard 15" sized rims?
