Son has newer car. Says brakes "feel" rough. Inspected all 4 rotors. Smooth. Pads are ok thickness Cept for rears. About 20% left. Rotors look and feel nice. So, gonna change rear pads. Should we leave rotors as is? We can do this step by step. New pads. Drive car. Better or same? We think pads are oem.

We changed his rear pads. His car stops with much less pedal effort than mine and certainly feels like it stops faster. My car feels much less grippy. Pedal feels soft, and brakes just do not feel effective. Would like to try a set of pads with more bite.
