ever since i bought my car in november of 2006, it has had an increasingly dramatic shudder as i brake. especially dramatic at high speeds, which is quite reassuring on the highway to memphis in the middle of nowhere, mo.
today, i got my rotors replaned and new brake pads and shoes. (thank you, government-issued rebate. could i BE more practical?)
the shudder, it is gone.
i’m almost more scared without it, it has been my constant companion for so long. it is eerily smooth and silent coming to a stop off of a highway exit now. i think, though, that i can live with it.
