Drilled And Slotted Rotor Owners - Maintenance Question


Recommended Posts

Ok.... so i have put like 18,000 miles in 16months on these Cquence rotors... it is apparent that i am getting scoring on the rotors and i am starting to get some steering wheel shake but i have more than half the pad left.

What the hell should i do?

Should i have the rotors cut to even the surface out?

Should i get new rotors?

Should i just quit my bitching and drive them in to the ground?

pls hlp....

:cheers

Oh here is the scoring i am talking about

Mine are doing the same thing, but I'm at 44K on the rotors. Mine had no debris, but I get a noise, and bad brake fade if I'm harsh on the brakes.

The solution? Not sure, I'm itching to replace them, but I haven't gotten my F-body calipers yet.

But IIRC, you can't resurface them.

im starting to notice scoring on these drilled rotors to be very common.. they are not designed for any mega mileage and i have heard it has to do with the heat distribution

you could try having them turned as long as the shop take accurate measuements to meat the scored.. personally i would get new

no man u can get them resurfaced and depending on how much they are "out" depends on how long they will last afterward
