Ok thanks will try the Penrite oil & see if shudder goes!
Been told by Bendix that Ultimate pads are pretty aggressive & hard wearing on Disc rotors.
BA,s seem to suffer all the following- Diff probs-Trans probs-Brake probs-Radiator & diff Probs.etc etc etc.
Im thinking of buying a bloody Commadore now that Fords have turned to sh*t.

Hey Housie, if you still have stock discs dont bother getting them machined.
My Ba Mk1 is six yrs old,I got it in 2006 with 40,000kms.
13months ago(just out of warranty) I had 4 wheel machine & top quality pads fitted.Just got back from a trip to maitland & brakes are shuddering that bad it nearly shakes the wheel outta ya hands!

So have checked out DBA & RDA rotors & bendix pads & have booked car in to have 4 X DBA slotted rotors at an amazing $420 +pads & labour=$725
Paid $500 only last yr to have em done, I should have done them right first time!

Yeah RDA are cheaper & a brand called UPC.
But I have used DBA on the EL we had & they were perfect so will stick with DBA. Only paying $105 each.
Also with doing the rears Im told I can fix that bloody handbrake scrapping you hear when doing 5-20k's.

practice make perfect. i just have the cheapest amp i could find running mine at the moment, i think i paid $175 and runs the two subs fine. There really is no 'better' amps just look for one in you price range with a good RMS rating
