Holistic brake treatment
Being that my LT has been in my garage for only 80 days, I am reluctant to start changing brake parts; you know, the $20,000 price tag thing. So, I am investigating the holistic approach. I check the tire pressures once a week, and at the same time lightly sand paper the rear rotor while the U-boat is in dry dock (center stand). I clean it afterwards with a rag moist with brake cleaner. This treatment cuts the brake squalling dramatically and takes about 2 minutes. Also, I have been trying the hard braking thing, which seems to help.
I am no longer embarrassed at stop lights... She used to sound like a dump truck coming to a stop. Now, just a few little squeaks.
Found all this info on the forum, of course.
