Front Pad Clatter

For those of you suffering with front brake clatter, I have a fix.

I bought Performance Friction Z-rated pads to work with my PF-01 track pads and they clattered so bad it was embarrassing. The piston side pads are missing the anti-rattle clip that comes on stock pads.

I purchases some titanium brake pad shims from Hard Brakes and coated them both sides with CRC anti-squeal spray. Then I sprayed the back of the pads. This stuff is tacky and once you put the pads and shims together, it dampens out the vibrations that allow the rattle. Two weeks of silence so far.

Your mileage may vary...

Dinan compliment of stuff plus PF rotors and RG63s. Enough for now.
Why, yes. I am an abrasive bastard.
