rofl

- get some new brake pads or check the rotors. TRD pads and Rotora slotted rotors are both good choices if you're considering a swap...

oh, then maybe your assumption about the stuck caliper is correct... time for a brake inspection?

I asked that same question long time ago too...I think a lot of celicas do that.

Most of the celica owners told me that it was not a big deal

I did my rotors/pads at least twice as long ago as you. I was telling people it was normal even with many more miles on their brakes a while ago. I had noises from not even 1,000 miles. I thought the change would be different, but it's not that much. I have had those noises and still do. It's just normal. My car just now breaks on dime like it use to. It takes a lot longer, than I would have thought, to break in Toyota's pads and rotors. I'm glad I took it easy during those days. My E-brake pads need replacing. That I'm sure of. What ever happened to Street Prototype giving me help in the past with this? The E-brake still needs servicing.

the breaks still grab hard, squeak a little when they stop, but they are EBC Green stuf so that is expected with kevlar/cermanic pads...

Oh well, thanks for the input guys, and gals, its a sporadic problem, not worth worrying about rice
