1994 Seville SLS
Hi again. I fitted rear rotors a year or so ago, and paid for ones with lifetime warranty. The fronts however, I had skimmed on a Hunter machine at a local tire shop. As soon as I saw the cutting tool I realised that all was not well. I simply do not believe that discs should be cut...grinding is the only process that I would approve of in other applications of this type. Still, it was Hobsonís choice.
Sure enough, after a few weeks, the brakes are shaking the car really badly. The guy from the shop says that it must be the rear brakes, cos the steering wheel is not vibrating rotationally.
I doubt this, but now Iím trapped between suppliers. Jacking the fronts then the backs and turning the wheel by hand with the brakes partly on, does not show any sign of variation of grip during rotation.
I have read hereĖa long time agoĖthat rotors do not really warp...they just get pad chemicals ingrained into the metal. I donít really want to get into that argument, but Iím at a loss at the moment.
If I replace the pads, and it is still bad, could I then put rotors on and bed the same pads in again. Or would they be too warn to the old contours?
Is there any way to clean the rotors. I also read on the same thread that one should not use emery paper/cloth.
I have searched, but what is the latest thinking on mid priced rotors and pads. Iím getting mixed reaction to ceramic V green. I no longer want to drive hard...so a mid performance product is good.
I have heard Warner mentioned as being part of another groupe. Thanks for any info? RB
