Need advice. I've had two Sables over the past 7 years and they all
developed warped front rotors in the first 35000 miles. My latest a 2002
model just started at 37000 miles. Should I turn them down or by after
Personally, i would just buy new Chinese rotors instead of turning them.
Compare the prices. I don't think its that much more to get the
new ones (assuming your doing it yourself) And then they will last
longer because they have more meat on them.
Really? My god, my rotors are so warped now that I can even feel the
effects when I'm not braking. When I do brake, the steering wheel waggles
back and forth horribly.
So how long have you had the Wagner rotors and Ceramix pads? Have you had
to do any really hard braking that would really heat up the rotors followed
by a nice splash through some standing water in the road? I think I really
did some damage to my new rotors when a dump truck veered off into the left
lane. I thought he was going to drive off into the pasture to dump his
load or something, but instead he suddenly turned back to the right. I had
to brake like the dickens to keep from eating his load (eww, that sounds
nasty) and I think the sudden heat buildup really messed up the rotors. It
had gotten worse over the following months. Now it's to the point where I
can't wait to get new rotors on this thing. That's coming within the next
i got a 96 contour.. needed to replace the rotors.. went to autozone and
bought two front rotors for $30 each... they still on car after about 4
yrs. never had a problem with them... when putting the tires back on the
car make sure the tire shop guy does not put the air impact wrench on
it.. or make sure he is using a regulated one that only puts about 80
lbs on it or like me when i get home i take the nuts loose and put them
back on about 80 lbs. of torque...
