Brake Disc & Pad {Revisited} – Phase 1

Mileage: 120,557KM
DIY Level: Medium

It’s about time my braking system requires some tender and care. This entry will only covers the front disc brake only, I will cover the rear braking system on next article later. The reason being is that time was so jealous on me hence I could not proceed with the rear braking system yet. Will do it when time permits.

For this time around, I will change the parts from Brembo disc + genuine pad combo to all around TRW Lucas parts. I could not find a good Brembo deal in short period of time and Brembo brand currently is in the mainstream market thus to find the best quality like two years ago is like finding a needle in the haystack (imitation is on the rise nowadays). Brembo now is made under license from Chinese factory (info not from a reliable source; just a hearsay).
