Default Anyone has BBK with weird brake pad sound?

Just recently installed a set of Good Wind BBK ver 1.

when I press slightly harder on the brakes, I could hear a snapping sound from the brakes. Sound like the pads in the Wilwoods are shafting inside them.

Get rid of the cotter pins and order a set of bridgebolts from Wilwood.

those'r different calipers though...


the wilwoods, after a little break-in time, will wear the pads unevenly and since they push on the rotor at an angle, there's some movement that makes a little EYYRK noise as you step on the pedal hard. I bet a thin stainless shim between the pad and piston would cure it. Someone make me some too.

When I bought my BBK it came with the wilwood cotter pin style calipers.
All I did was drill a bigger hole to except the bridge bolt.

It's really easy to do,it's also a far better design than the cheesy cotter pins.

It holds the pads in place alot better and it prevents the pads from chattering.
