Re: DIY Rear Disc Brakes- Gen 1 xB...yep you read right!
I don't know any of the technical terms, but there is some brake fade that has been taken care of by the SS brake lines. As you are traveling to a complete stop, there is some loss of strength with the pedal under hard braking. All of that is gone now. Honestly, probably the biggest improvement would be found with the SS brake lines. Also, the car no longer has the "ass lift" it used to have with last minute hard braking. The height of the car remains even and it no longer feels as if the car is going to flip forward. I love it!
ETA= Soon enough...June '12, made it!
