If braking power is the same or close to OEM brakes, but a firmer and more consistent pedal feel is the result this mod, it may be worth it for me. However, if the same result could be achieved with bushings/fluid at A LOT cheaper cost, why not go that route?
Iíll report back in few weeks. I ran the stock setup with Castrol SRF and PFC (01 front 08 rear) and thought it was still underwhelming. Just waiting for weather to warm up so I can respray the calipers first.
