I dont have a ZHP, I have a ZSP - a sports package. Just curious, does ZHP have better brakes? realoem doesnt list any different parts...

Thats also just the thing, I think my front right caliper may need to be rebuilt. Not only do I get a shaking wheel at all speeds and braking force (just barely there at 30 to stop light, but quicker braking on highway and its differently there. Differently not wheels, tires or allignment b/c I had all that re-done after the car was rear-ended) The main thing though is the heat / brake dust. After just normal driving, the front passenger wheels seems hotter. Over time, while the rear wheels are VERY clean, the front driver wheel is relatively clean) the front passenger will be more dirty / dusty than the rest.

CLIFFS: Wheel shakes under braking. Front passenger wheel is hotter and more dirty / dusty than all other wheels. Do I need to look into the condition of that caliper?

nope, its a 2004 facelift so 6speed is standard. your thinking of some time before 2004

Besides, I have OEM Chrome window trim and 5 style 68 rims still... its not a ZHP

Have you checked your FCAB's? That will give you vibration as well.

Nice. Your mods have obviously made a difference, you creamed the 325.
