Just replaced the front brake pads and pins because they were seized and had uneven wear.
New pins on and sliding properly, but braking power is very weak.
I read there is a “breaking in” process, but it kinda feels as if I’m only using my rear brakes. No noises from brakes, but noticed my steering wheel shakes a bit (while continuing straight).
I did a few slow stops at 30mph, and then 45mph. About 45 seconds in between. Left a burnt rubbery smell on the right (passenger) brake, nothing on the left. I assumed this was the joining agent on the new pads.
First brake job. Not sure if I installed them incorrectly or if I’m supposed to wait it out for them to “break in”.
