    Re: Brake Rotor question

    The Rock Auto OES rotors, GM part number 25750257, appear to be the current GM replacement rotor. They are listed as the OEM replacement by other GM part oneline suppliers at similar prices(GMPartsDirect, PacePerformance, etc.), and presumably are what you would get at the dealership.

    The Brakemotive setup is a good deal for what you're getting. I did have a warped caliper after two years of DD service. Not really sure how it happened either, but oh well. I had to buy a new pair of front rotors from brakemotive for $128 shipped (after 10% discount). Now I have a spare. Plenty of pad life left after 25k or so. Dust is hardly noticeable, and there have been no squeaks.

    Re: Brake Rotor question

    Considering the price that dealer wants to charge you and that we are talking about rear rotors here (which do very little braking comparatively to the fronts), are you sure they actually even need to be replaced?

    I have the brake motive rotors and pads. Close to 40k of spirited daily driving. No squeals and very little dust compared to others. They do have a good initial grab after warmed a little.

    Re: Brake Rotor question

    I went with some Raybetos for $52 each. I wanted black hats, non drilled/slotted to match the fronts. Thanks all for the input...

    Raybestos 580265 Advanced Technology. Found them on Amazon with free 2 day with my prime account.

    Yeah, but they will make it up on volume.

    I talked to the mechanic doing the service, he said they were past getting them turned. They do look a lot older than the fronts. I felt he was honest,he told me my pads had more than 50% life left and wasn't trying to sell me on those as well. It floored me when he said $500, he said they charged the V2 guys around $1000.

    Re: Brake Rotor question

    The GM rotors carry an MRSP of $134 each and the standard labor allowance to remove and replace the rear rotors is 1.5 hours. So, the $500 is plausible. If the pads were changed, the parts would be additive but no additional labor allowance would apply.

    Re: Brake Rotor question

    The rotors I just received from Raybestos seem like really nice quality for the $52. What would make the GM worth a $134? Is the GM quality that much better or just the typical Cadillac tax being slapped on them ?

    The $52 price is discounted, whereas the $134 is the MRSP dealer price of the same rotor that Rock Auto sells for $67. The dealer price is higher because the dealer is recovering the fixed costs associated with its staffed, brick & mortar facility.

    Re: Brake Rotor question

    How did you diagnose a warped caliper? I have brake motive drilled and slotted rotors and have a terrible shudder intermittently, told rotors are not warped. Wonder if it's the caliper?

    My shudder was when braking from hwy speeds. I pulled the wheel off and turned the rotor by hand and it dragged pretty good at one point. I replaced the rotor and the shudder was gone. The warp was so slight it wasn't easily noticed. The rotor face probably wasn't the issue as I can lay it on a flat surface and notice no gaps around the edges. I believe the hats are what get warped as that is usually the thinnest part.
