Bit tecknicacle for me, but I think I get it

As we are talking brakes why do our breaks screech when I just gently tough them to slow down slowly?

With regards to the OP a set of Airide rear suspension units, including fitting, should cost less than a third of the price he has been quoted.

"If you find that your brakes only squeal at low speed there are a number of causes. Some high-performance brakes will often squeal at lower speeds and with gentle braking when new, but will no longer make this noise once the brakes have been bedded in. Another factor causing brake squeal at lower speeds is that as many new cars are fitted with harder brake pad materials they have a higher tendency to squeak especially at lower speeds.

Squealing brakes at low speeds can also be caused by dirt or debris trapped within the braking mechanism causing an area to rub resulting in a high pitched squeal. At higher speeds, the rubbing occurs more quickly which can result in a different frequency that is no longer audible."

Hi,many thanks for your link re MOT issues explaining that they are not bump stops as such but Aeon springs which are hollow albeit a very primitive suspension assist.When i had the conversation with Adria at no time did they say they were Aeon springs and not bump stops and appeared to be more concerned regarding all the safety boxes were ticked and seemed unaware what the suspension components actually did

Yes you are correct in saying it can be cheaper but the cheaper system can only be adjusted manually/ physically pumping or a trip to the air point at a garage ,the cost for a Dunlop system would be around 600 or the full system 1500 supplied with a on board compressor and two pressure gauges one for each rear suspension allowing in cab adjustment depending load

If the rear end is heavy then AirRide units may be the way to go. Kits are available for about 450 and fitting about an hour

The supplying dealership recommends 79 psi the maximum for the tire is 80 psi so it does seem very high....not sure if you can run on a lower pressure but it would certainly help
