I get better braking from my Saturn and Altima sadly. Or do I just need to upgrade the brake system all around, I.e ss lines, calipers etc etc
Not sure all the brake work done.
There is a bedding process for new pads.
Maybe they opened a line (no clue why) and you have air in it.
Could be seized caliper pins or pistons, usually this make it pull to one side (the side that is working).

Bedding is good.
The rest is more for max braking like track days, shouldn't be needed for a DD.
