Update on new brake pads

Just finished installing the PBR Deluxe pads on the front.
Was rediculously simple, even for my first time doing brakes on this car.

Only thing that held me up was getting the pistons pushed back far enough to get the new pads fact, on the right side, I ended up having to get out the power hand sander and shave off about 1/16" !!!!
There was NO WAY that last pad was going to make it. Finally got all of them in with new sensors and MB anti-squeel paste.

Maiden drive up and down the street showed absolutely NO noise.....thus far
...and the braking feel was excellent!!! Slightly grabby but only to the extent that it made the stopping power feel that much stronger. Overall, I'm very happy with them so far.

Now....I just need to clean the wheels and wait for a week to go by and jugde how much brake dust is accumulating on the wheels. I'll update when I get this info.
