Squeeking brakes? Damn those things, mine do it to and drives me nuts. what's the fix for the breaks? Nothing worse than pulling up in your supposed luxuy car with the breaks squeeking like hell.

The fix for mine is to make the SA get them changed earlier than when my car says they need to be changed.

  • West Coast Specialties
  • Chapparone Auto Body & Painting
Just got my car back from Philip Thearle's; its in perfect condition now. Somehow they got the dents out of the trunk, roof, and hood all with paintless dent removal. Pretty impressive.

np!

if you are talking about parking lot speed brake squeak, it is most likely from the brake sensor.... it never goes away...

Anyone recommend a place for a smog check? I'm all stock. And the brake squeaks never stop for me either.

Who's got the tire hookup? I need a pair of 285/30/19's to stop the rubbing I'm getting. Fender roll didn't help the situation much (have 295/30's now), so I'm thinking that dropping down a size will.

I love the flush look I have now, but it's going to tear up my tires in short order.

add more negative camber and less toe-in.

Just buy my 2 PSSs (255/35/19) for $175. This way you're on your way from flush to hella frush!!

I'm already herra frush....I'm gonna be shrinking back from that, otherwise I'm gonna blow a damn tire....lol.

As far as camber and toe-in, won't that just wear the tires more quickly, too?

Kasé Zomé, you coming tomorrow night?
