my front pads had begun to squeal so I ordered another set from Milners as the ones fitted had been so good. I also ordered some tears but didn’t change these as there was plenty left on the Ferodo ones in there. I just gave them a bit of Copper Ease around the slidey bits and put them back. The new ones came with a serious chamfer each end (pic to follow) and brake feel is now pretty spongy with a need to press pretty hard for any real stopping power. I was careful not to push the brake pedal too far down when pumping it all back tight again. My question is are they going to improve, bed in, or do I need to be looking elsewhere? Or is it simply the reduced pad area (my suspicion) that means reduced braking? Does anybody have some older Milners known good pads to compare, @Chris ? I cannot imagine air has got in because I haven’t opened the system. I cannot understand the sponginess though. Any thoughts appreciated.
