pairing them up next to my other cars (protege5, sentra, altima and civic) they have horrible fade and far less grip. I asked my mechanic to check things out and everything is working correctly, just weak brakes in my opinion.

as for the warping, my mechanic explained it as this, whoever replaced the brake pads previously, didnt put any grease on the pins, thus not allowing the calipers full freedom of movement, so they stayed clamped longer than they normally would have.
typically, I would do a brake job myself, but as he was looking at an issue Im having in another area already, and I had the pads on hand, he went ahead and put them on for me today. anyways, once I get the newer calipers and rotors on, Im going to have him manually adjust the rear drums as well, just to cover my bases

Im still having a little bit of an issue with identifying the correct brackets, does anyone have a link to part numbers for the specific brackets I need ?

awesome, thank you !
for the record, I know I can use the search function, and have, the problem is I suck at it, Ive never been good using search engines, maybe I use too literal phrasing or too vague, or.... I dont know, I just always have issues with using search functions.
so I apologize for asking questions that I know have been answered.

This sites Search Function isn't that bad..........if done correctly.
Change the default search box from Threads to Google Search and you'll get much better results.
