Anyone using one of these on a relatively STOCK braking system?
Any comments, thoughts?
Seems like a good idea if it works as it is advertized, eliminating the front end diving during braking.
Thanks:cheers:

HI there,
The bias spring basically sends more of your hydraulic pressure to the rear wheels. Brake dive is a basic condition, and it is noticable because your front brakes do more work than the rears. YOu have larger pads, and rotors on the front.
The basic negative side to this, is that you will probably wear your rear pads faster. Also, what does this do to your balance at higher speeds, will it lengthen your distances???
I dont know the answer to the last question, however, these are points that you may ask your vendor.
Besttoyou, c4c5:z:

whoa

I thought the Z used a dynamic setup like the trucks had. I seem to recall that being in the hype last year.

HI MIke,
You are absolutely right, for 01-02, they had this type setup.
As for the earlier models, they used a brake bias spring inside the proportioning valve.
Im really not thinking, and needed the coffee, that I just dont have yet.
FYR, if you are talking about your car, Mike is right, you dont have one.
Im going for my coffee now.:eek2:
