Brake Judder No More

I finally got an opportunity to do a little work yesterday. Like many of you have experienced, I had horrible brake judder from day one. I let the stealership take care of it on one occasion, but their efforts were always short lived.

After doing a considerable amount of research, most of which from this forum, I purchased some front and rear Brembo blanks from Tirerack and Axxis Ultimate pads from Stoptech. Tirerack does not list the rear rotors on their website, but I did a little research and found out with pretty good probability that the rear rotors were the same on the 2002 and 2003 accords. It turns out that the rotors are the same diameter, but the hub portion of the rotor is about 1/4 inch larger. There is still clearance from the bottom of the pad and the rotor hub.

I got lucky and still had 8 phillips head rotor screws left over from my previous 95’ GSR. Those proved to be invaluable, (I had to drill the rears out). My fiancé decided to use her new digicam and document the job. The job took about 7 hours. I am extremely neurotic and cleaned everything (wheels, tires, suspension and any thing else I could get Simple Green on) before I worked on it

So far no judder and still breaking the new pads and rotors in. It was finally nice to sit in the driver’s seat and not have the steering wheel vibrate like a 1990 VW Jetta

Gordy
