Are my pads glazed?
I have Brembo x-drilled/slotted rotors with OEM pads up front with drums also with OEM shoes in the rear. My brakes have been grinding a bit as I come to a stop. It only does it sporatically and it doesn't sound horrible, just a slight grinding.
I checked my pads and even my shoes, but everything looks like the day I put them in (8 months ago). I'm almost certain it's coming from the front brakes.
Could my pads be getting overheated and/or are glazed?
Should I try Hawk pads?
Also which way are slotted rotors supposed to go? Mine point forwards but I've seen them pointed either way on different cars... does it matter?
