2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06: Brakes Sound Like This
May 02, 2011
After nearly 60,000 miles of fun the brakes on our 2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 sound like this.
A closer look suggested we might be a little overdue for a brake job. I'm not going to beat our drum too much, but it takes a certain talent to burn leopard spots onto your rotors.

In the spirit of getting the job done quickly we dropped the Vette off at a local dealership. New front pads, new rear pads and a set of non-feline patterned front rotors set us back 840 bucks. We called Allen Gwynn Chevrolet in Glendale late-morning and the keys were back in hand by early afternoon.
