This weekend is work on the car weekend. On the agenda are swapping out the Bilsteins for stock struts so the Bilsteins can get rebuilt, putting back on my AutoSpeed exhast and brake work.
I've got just north of 80k on the car and decided since my semi-annual bonus was good that it was time to replace pads and rotors. I've got new Carbotech pads and Stoptech slotted rotors. The question is, should I plan on replacing the parking brake shoes and/or hardware while I'm at it? My parking brake has never been used for anything but parking, so I doubt it in real need of replacement, but given that the shoes are only $15 plus shipping, would it make sense to do them too?
I've also found a parking brake hardware kit that has all the little springs and clips. It's only $14, so again the question is whether it's potentially needed or not. My guess is that it's not a 'must replace' item, but maybe worth doing while everything's already apart?
