I just had new rotors,new axles and cv boots and bearings put on the car.
last night after i turned off the car i applied the brake cause the car
was drifting i heard a scraping noise,is that because the car wasnt on. i
was told i dont need new brakes at all i just took it back to the mechanic
and asked,he would of put new brakes on when i got my rotors if i needed
them.he is very trustworthy. my mom said she hears scraping sometimes when
she got new rotors in her eclipse. thanks for your help.also i cant hear if
they are scraping when i am driving cause my husband has exhaust on the
i am going to take it back to the same mechanic and have the same person i
always get to look at it... he isn't the one who did all the rotors and
all. the guy who did the rotors and everything was new. i will make them
take off the wheels and look at the breaks with me there.

the other items. I am sorry. Your present plan seems to me to be a good

that said, i was sold front disks for an '89 civic no less than 3 times
that were 20mm thick. the 90 up takes 20mm, the 88-89 takes 18mm. the
disks fitted, but were slightly too large for the caliper & scraped.
seems that some of the parts books omit this vital distinction.
