the best thing to do is brake rapidly form 60 down to almost 0. Repeat 3-4 times until they really stink. Now park the car. Allow them to cool for at lest 30 min. U R done.
It looks like on the Stoptech website that their procedure for a proper bed in is a little different/more aggressive.
They suggest you do 10 times a 60 MPH to 10 MPH hard braking to lock up your tires/abs "(about 80 to 90% of the deceleration required to lock up the brakes and/or to engage the ABS)," from the stoptech website. After this you want to let the car cool by driving at a good speed without braking to a stop but applying the brakes? This part is a little confusing..
After cooling, you want to do another 10 times 60-10 hard braking and let it cool after that.
(the link is also on top of the page)
My question is, what do they mean by "The system should then be allowed to cool, by driving the vehicle at the highest safe speed for the circumstances, without bringing it to a complete stop with the brakes still applied."
Are we cruising on the freeway while left foot braking or are we just driving normally while braking from time to time?
