    Rotors

    Iíve had my OEM front rotors turned 2 times. Today they had heat cracks and Oriallyís was unable to turn them again. I purchased BOSCH repayment rotors from Oriallyís, they have a lifetime warranty. My question is I have OBC redstuff brake pads that are still in really great shape. I installed them on my new rotors. Should they be replaced or will they bed if I drive appropriately? My Trans AM has 42 k On the clock.

    I have block sanded used pads to remove any raised areas and reinstalled them with new rotors. Not an ideal solution, but it does seem to work without any problems. Check out the R1 Concepts rotors (site sponsor) - I have been running them on our car with Hawk HPS pads and the difference in stopping power is very noticeable.

    Yep you should've sanded them a bit before the install, but you should be ok.

    If you have another problem with shakey braking, go somewhere and get you rotors machined with an on-car brake rotor lathe. Rotors matched to the hub, problem solved.

    It is disc thickness variation that causes shaking when braking, and that variation is caused by a warped rotor/hub.

    R1 concept rotors and HPS hawk performance pads at the moment. I used EBC red stuff also. they are both excellent pads. Since I switched to R1 concept rotors I haven't had any warped rotor issues.
