I run a fleet; this procedure has saved me thousands of $$$$.

As you say, this may save a lot of time and money and frustration.
(I'm surprised that this post hasn't had one reply since originally posted in June -- if this is the answer to my (our) high speed braking issue, thank you for the information, NR)

You can do this procedure any time - not just with new pads.Originally Posted by BragonMyMag
As soon as any of my employees complain about "judder" or "pulsing" or say the words "warped disc", I take the vehicle out to a country road and bed in the brakes.
Warped discs are rare on street cars and are mainly caused by technicians lugging the nuts on with an air wrench with no torque settings.
I have saved thousands of dollars with this basic procedure. And - I enjoy doing it.
Good info, thanks
I'm going to use that procedure this morning... shortly after the MSRT8 arrives.
Still in love with my first wife, and first car ('68 Charger)... Still have the wife!
Just installed new rotors and pads. going to give this a shot. Dont want any steering wheel nonsense again.
Yes holy thread revival i know haha.
