In case of hard braking they are spongy and the car decelerates hardly as it was loaded with 1000 kg! Fluid was changed 10 months ago but it didn't make any difference. Two years ago the pads were changed and the sliding pins were in good condition and the calipers move freely. I wil check them again.
Hi all I have an L200 2004 plate and I think that it has weak brakes since new. I have to push very hard the pedal in case of a sudden braking. I have made the three checks shown in the workshop manual for the brake booster and it seems ok. How can l improve them? Better brake pads- which ones? Stiffer brake hoses? Twin piston calipers from other model? Also in hard braking I feel a high frequency pulsation on the pedal. Is it normal?
Where can I buy the special socket for the front wheels bearings?
