I just follow PowerStop's general 40 to 10 aggressive (X5) and 35 to 5 moderate (X5) then drive to cool them down.So after reading up on the uneven thickness rotor causes and solutions to prevent it, the main preventatives they describe is the proper selection of pads specified for application, and the proper bedding procedure performed when new braking surfaces are installed. The bedding procedure for street pads they describe is quite detailed, requires traffic free long stretches of roadways, and if is interrupted should be started all over again.
I've done this before with street performance pads that came with instructions for bedding them in, but I never even thought that regular pads should be done as well.
Do any shops ever perform a bedding process on brakes they install?
Do any high end manufacturers with expensive braking components ever perform the steps?
Does anyone ever do this, or is the process just ignored and performance is accepted without the procedure?
For reference bedding info
Actually it just occurred to me I'm kinda lucky to live on a relatively quiet, straight, flat stretch of 60mph paved county road....
