breaks
i have to get my breaks done. when i got an oil change they guy said that my break fluid was low, and my pads were worn out. do you guys replace them yourself, or do you all get it done at a shop. how much did it cost you guys?

brake fluid just pop ur Hood, find the cap that says "brake fluid" & fill to the line.

pads are easy to replace. unless your rotors are damaged all yoou should need to purchase are pads.

go to tirerack.com and purchase "green pads"...all 4 shouldnt cost more than $100 thumbsup

*all 2 sets shouldnt cost more than $50 (since you have a gt your rar drums won't require pads)

speed is right, but add fluid to the brake reservoir after your done replacing your brake pads. dont forget to pump your brake pedal before you start rolling or you'll just keep on rolling. ehehehe

Do it yourself, the first time is hard coz you have to learn how to do it. But you'll save money and quality in the long run, well save money and get more quality.

Go to your local auto zone, pads are relatively cheap. For a good pair, they're 20 bucks.

go to the library and check out a chilton's manual

bleeding the brake line is only if you are upgrading the brake fluid and/or trying to get bubbles out of the brake line

bleeding is where you open a tap on the calipers and bleed the brake fluid from the reservoir through the caliper

it also requires two people unless you have a bleeding kit

Oh yeah, make sure the brake pads you get matches the rotor

If you don't know, just ask the local autozone ppl

coz it's no use to pay an upgrade on the brake pads when it doesn't work well with the rotors

i think the green stuff brake pads are compatible with the stock rotors (if norway gt does decide to go with brembo rotors they should work fine as well seeing that they are "oem style").

also, the TRD brake pads are compatible, but cost a little more ($125) and although they provide more stopping power than stock pads..the green pads are better (although the TRD pads will last longer because of this) thumbsup

you can also replace the drum brake pads.
it's a little more difficult to replace the pads on those because of the springs/small mechanisms involved, but once you get the experience, it's pretty straightforward.

on the gts w/ rotors all around, Yes.
for the e-brake, there is a separate setup behind the center of the rotor that has it's own drum brake setup.(housing for the e-brake "drum" is built into the rear rotors)

on the gt w/ rear drum brakes, no.
there should be a cable that controls the e-brake in the brake drum assembly.
