Partially seized type-r brakes affecting handling
Over the last 2 weeks or so i totally lost confidance in the front end of my type-r.
Basically the steering felt a vague and i was getting no feedback from the front wheels through the steering wheel.
The car always seemed to be adjusting its position on the road (its difficult to explain) and it just felt wrong, a kind of tramlining effect.
Eventaully i discovered that the switching the stabilistation off helped slightly and i got it into my head that the stabilisation was somehow doing something to the front wheels it shouldnt be.
Anyway....took it to the garage today and they discovered the brakes had partially seized.
They stripped and cleaned and the handling is perfect again and confidance fully restored
Can anyone explain how the partially seized brakes would adversely effect handling as I am interested to know. Also any information on how the veichle stability system would be affected by seized brakes would also be appreciated.
P.S £60 to strip and clean
