    Forgive me if this topic has been covered before, but i think mine do. I have a 2018 with 18k miles and for the last 10k the brakes seem mushy or almost undersized. It feels like maybe having the brake lines bled might cure it or maybe I need a brake job already? I will have them checked out this weekend.

    They arent the top notch brakes but try SS lines 1st and see if that helps with the grab of the braking, way better than the rubber lines. If not R1 concepts is the brand most seem to go with. Slotted and drilled rotors, Freedom Motorsports. Chris Kelley

    I heard good things when you remove the rubber lines and put on some pads with more bite.

    Call it the cheap Brembo upgrade lol

    i strongly recommend Raybestos slotted rotors and Ceramic pads. The stoptech product is junk in my experience
