  1. Rear Brake Dragging - Aftermarket rotors

    1G Problems & Issues
    Aftermarket brake rotors may not fit Ridgeline (or any Honda) and may drag on the parking brake. Just wanted to potentially spare someone else the headache and additional costs that I had to deal with. I bought these Carquest Platinum Painted brake rotors from AdvanceAuto...
  2. Brakes slow pulsation

    1G Problems & Issues
    I have an '06 with almost 100,000 miles. I've only had it for 25,000, so I'm not quite sure of the maintenance done before then. Recently, when coming to a stop, there is a slow pulsation which rocks you back to front. I can also feel it in the pedal mostly when I'm pressing somewhat harder...

    1G Mods, Installs and How-To's
    This past weekend I did a complete brake job front and rear on my 2007 Ridge, 82K miles. I resurfaced the factory rotors, replaced the pads with Duralast Golds, and completely flushed the brake fluid (in the proper sequence). I drove it a little on Saturday and a little more on Sunday and...

Had a good experience, anyone interested in details, I have a trip report available. About 2/3 through the trip, I noticed...
  6. Brake Rotors

    1G Under The Hood / Performance
    I was wondering. How do you get the brake rotors off? Do you just unbolt the caliper-mounting bolts, remove the caliper, and they slide right off the studs, just like the convenient GM's, or do you have to unscrew two phillips screws near the rotor center to remove the rotors from the hubs...
  7. DRT Rotors and Posi-Quiet Pads New 4 RL

    1G Under The Hood / Performance
    I found a company yesterday that makes a good quality premium rotor for a RL. They sell cheaper economy rotors on Ebay, but after contacting them they added the RL to their website so I could order the Premium rotors. The premiums are powdercoated and come from a centric cast blank. I paid $280...
