Asked Andie from Cobalt Friction about the pics. His comment: This is completely fine. The RB rotors are a harder alloy material than the OEM rotors and as a result pad deposit variances are more visible. In his words, this actually looks "very good". Important point of learning for me, that pad deposits look different depending on the rotor materials. Whew!

See on the back side it looks all crusty, cracked and crumbled? This is a worst case scenario as the dust boot has completely come apart and separated. Yea, I am hard on brakes and this was when I rebuilt the pots in the early part of the year with the RB kit. The bad news, they are leaking now and I have to figure out why. I suspect that the RB kit did not stand up to the heat either.

The drag strip is like sniffing glue, it's cheap, it's a decent buzz, it doesn't last long and they are all the same.
Road racing is like China White Heroin, the buzz is stronger, the high lasts for hours, it's extremely addictive and they are all different.
I can't wait for my next
Track fix.

T, what is your pad and rotor setup? Do you have brake ducts?

While the RacingBrake pistons and seals are a step up. They still have their heat limit and heat cycle limit. The outer boot or seal is just for dust and is exposed. If the inner oil seal is good then you wouldn't have a problem with seapage. I like the improvement I got from the RacingBrake pistons on the oem calipers. If you ever see the RB caliper, both oil seal and dust boot are inside the piston housing, keeps some of the heat off and the exposure way down.

I Do not think you can have a dust boot last long if you are pushing it and driving in heat.

Update for some more new products coming from RacingBrake...they are making a few new pads. Hope to be more aggressive and a higher heat range

Didn't take the pistons out, but took a pic while swapping brake pads. Looks like the boot is crisped on the top one, right?

What all is involved in swapping them out? Can it be done without taking piston out, etc?

Thanks man

The pistons just snap out with a pock or screwdriver my self personally though if I was doing boots I would just do a total rebuild.

It's the boot and a seal that amounts to basically an o ring.

SSSoon,

That actually does not look too bad. If it is not leaking and it is only the one dust boot I would not rebuild it yet.

You can actually get just the dust boots from Chevy for $60 retail or $40 if your parts guy likes you, mine does. That is for both sides.

OR you can order the whole kit from RockAuto for $5.35 a side plus shipping. Part# 15312.

This is cheaper than what Chevy has them listed for but you have to wait for them to show up at your door.
