quickie.

Front Right Brake Pads aren't wearing in. Front Lefts are wearing in good.

Rears have no issues.

I just installed Aftermarket Drill/Slot Rotors and Ceramic Pads all around. Getting lots of brake dust for 1st 50 miles. Kinda jerky when I slam on them not so smooth.

I think I have caliper issues as to why the pads aren't contacting the new rotors. Rotors on front right still look brand new.

Do you think a brake flush will fix this ? I don't think fluid is getting to the caliper.

Make sure the system is Bled, if that doesn't solve it you will need to check the picton on the caliper to see if its seized up.

and what is with all the brake dust? I sprayed some tire shine on my rims....bad idea?

does that stuff get sticky and catch dust?

Welcome to performance brakes. Mine put out tons of dust.

Well I learned some things about brakes I didn't know before.

actually i didn't have a clue about brakes on cars about 5 months ago.

I also learned that drilled rotors are shit. They destroy your brake pads fast and kick lots of dust.

Ya if you are to go with a performance rotor, I would suggest using a slotted rotor or just sticking with oem. The drilled rotors have a tendancy to crack if they get to hot or when they are close to the end of there life. Also performance brakes do produce a lot of dust I haven't seen a lot of ceramics do this but it still can happen.

The reason your right side looks new still is that the caliper piston could be seized, the caliper hardware could be dry and needs to be lubed up with brake caliper grease. If it is a fluid problem try and bleed the whole system but mainly the right side and see if fluid comes out if no fluid you might have a blockage in the line further up in the system.

FYI on brakes -
Friction is what stops your car and friction will always wear down something. So you get to choose what wears down, it will either be your brake pads (lots of dusts) or your rotors.

Take this matter seriously, a small bubble in your lines can cause brake failure..... you can probably guess what the result might be!

Also take into consideration that if there is no visiable damage i.e (bubbles or cracks) to the brake line, the lining on the inside could be coming apart and acting like a check vlave.
