  1. Quick update, new pads seem to be absolutely fine and zero squeal. Happy 👍
  2. Had the tyre skipping issue whilst at full lock on my Alfa Romeo Giulia. As others have said, it's a known problem with certain cars, when the tyres warmed up it was fine.
  3. Looks beautiful, I was drooling over it a week or so back. Apologies for the poor photography.
  4. Other side done, easier when you know what you're up against. Had to replace the sensor on this one as couldn't remove the old one from the pad. Calipers have more chips than Harry ramsdens, save the repaint for another time. Thanks for the help all
  5. They were as bad as my carrier pins on the RX300, looked like they'd never seen any grease and were corroded solid. Can already see the brake backing plates starting the corrosion process 😐 I will see how I get on with these pads, obviously finding the rears will be more problematic. Most of my miles are motorway, so I'm sure they will be fine, the LS460 is a heavier beastie, so they will have enough stopping power for me. Would love to track her some day though 😈 Fortunately no youtube GSF moments today, I shoved a trolley jack under the lower suspension arm busher just to be sure!
  6. Ok one side done, the bolts were an absolute bazza to get out. Lots of surface corrosion meaning a lump hammer was needed and plenty of WD40. Clips, pads and pins all nicely lubed now, round 2 tomorrow 😂 Oh and my calipers will need a repeat at some point, too many chips to mention 😔
  7. Cheers guys. I ordered Proslip grease from amazon, supposedly approved by Toyota. Comes in 3 tubes, one for pins, one for clips and one for the pads. Not cheap, hopefully it's ok.
  8. @Comedian what grease did you use on the pins / bolts? I've got copper grease for the pads. That GSF video gave me nightmares 😱
  9. I will be installing the new pads this week. Any gotchas doing it, or is it a simple job? Cheers
  10. @Erkeen RK congratulations and welcome to the club full of naturally aspirated V8 goodness 👍
  11. It was second time lucky for me with this order, my first set of pads went missing on their way to Houston, but the refund process was impressive. Won't hesitate using them again, I'm just lucky im normally able to get to the USA frequently, so can save on shipping etc.
  12. Exactly, it's not showing much faith in their product if they're charging that amount! Side note, there is a white LC with red leather at Lexus Notts, yowzer 😛
  13. Warranty done on the monthly. Hopefully I won't have to hand the car back 😅
  14. Just about to renew the warranty, it's too good a deal in reality.
