FRONT BRAKES

1998 Kia Sephia • 4 cylinder FWD Automatic • 166,000 miles

I have a 98 Kia sephia. Brakes have always been weak at best. I hear there is an upgrade. Does anybody know about this? What parts are required? Cost? How much improvement will be gained?

Thanks

Here is a TSB on the subject. It involved upgraded pads and rotors.

You can buy a premimum rotor and pad like EBC, rotors are cross-drilled and vented.

You may have trouble finding them for a Kia.

Also check with Kia and see if they offer a heavy duty pad/rotor.

Premimum rotors and pads usually run $100+ for rotor and $50 for pads.
