After replacing some rather shockingly worn brake pads on the motor at the weekend I've noticed that the brake bias seems to have shifted more towards the rear of the car. I've checked the fitting & cycled the ABS & its made no difference, after doing a bit of online searching it appears that the braking bias is meant to be set more toward the rear for safety i.e to keep the car more level under braking?
I cant say that I'm 100% that this is correct as I used to get a fair bit of nose dive under heavy braking before the new pads were changed fitted (though this could be down to the knackered pads. The car stops fine enough although it does feel a bit strange as if being dragged to a stop rather than the previous nose-diving, dont get me wrong I've tried some heavy braking and the front brakes & ABS do kick in + a couple of hundred motorway miles & the brakes were working very well at slowing from high speed. Its just the balance feels a bit 'weird'.
Does anyone else have any further knowledge on this?
