I just love English nomenclature...listen to those guys a 20 year old car... and to state the obvious brakes are life and death important, frugal is good but if you don't know a professional should take a look


brand new brakes

They did not replace the rubber flex hoses, if they did their decomposition and subsequent flow restriction would not occur~
