You need more than that for a real shine Get the mothers clay kit and cleaners wax instead, you will have a better result

Been hurting... They've been dragging all this time. I've never bled the brakes since I've bought the car.

Uhh question while were on the topic of brakes. When I push the brake pedal down it creaks. Does that indicate air in the brake lines?

Mine do the same thing, if you push hard down on the brake the pedal chatters it sucks.

When you bleed the brakes you also purge out the air. It goes one with another... Where's the contradiction?

Exactly my point, u claimed that ur breaks are dragging when u purged the air out the lines, then you claimed u never did it... Ergo contradiction....so which is it?

RAM or Spec may have a stage 3 clutch for our cars, couple other may as well however never looked into it. From what I've heard an aluminum fly wheel may or may not be worth it, similar to UDP's, if you have the extra cash I'd say go for it

??? Ok I'm going to say this again with more detail.

After purging/bleeding my brakes, I've noticed significantly less drag on acceleration and coasting. Especially on first gear, where I used to feel a killer drag (i made a post about this). Because of this change in behavior after purging/bleeding the brakes I'm led to assume that my brakes have been dragging all this time.

Edit: I see where you might have missread. I meant that I found out about the issue after purging the air out, not having the issue after purging the brakes.

Yeah, my best description of it would be crunchy rubber.

That mean air in the lines or is there just actual rubber somewhere doing it?

No that just indicates that your break pedal creaks. prob at the hinge.
