Price seams ok. The hub is the bit that spins and the brake disc is mounted to on the end of the driveshaft or axle. Has a bearing in there as well iirc.

Discs and pads are one thing, but even worn discs and pads would not give the inconsistant braking force you describe.

That would be down to air in the system as air compresses, Brake fluid does not! Then the air can cusion the braking force depending on where in the system the air is.

OR The master or slave cylinder is dodgy and is not always maintaing a seal strong enough to maintain the brake presure.
Currently in Tiggerz_SRi's garage:
Audi a4 v6 avant, used to have bmw 525d se estate, 2001 Toyota Previa 2.4 VVTi GLS, '98 R FORD Galaxy 2.3 Ghia X a Espace III 2.2dT RXE and a Lag I 1.8RT!
