Changing Brake Pads

Changing Brake Pads
Maybe dumb question but I keep getting 2 answers. I got new pads and one side of the fence says that I have to get the rotors turned. Other other side say you don't have to. They only negative thing I hear is if I just change the pads and not turn the rotors. I will warp the rotors. Anyone out there change the pad not turn the rotors and have had no problems?

seconded

I would second that with a caveat to check the rotor thickness to make sure it's in spec.

There is no need to turn rotors unless you have some issues with pedal pulsations or "hot spots". Even turning them may not cure hot spots.

Rotors for these cars are extremely cheap. Less than 80 bucks each for genuine Mopar slotteds.

Swapped pads (actually my daughter swapped them ) w/o turning the rotors. Zero issues and MUCH less dust since swapping with a set of Posi-Quiet pads.

No kidding, my 15yr old daughter did the swap! Gave her a floor jack and a torque wrench and off she went!

great

that's a great gift to a daughter... car repair experience!

Many girls are helpless out in the world and depend totally on others for car stuff.

Sounds like you're raising a very independent girl!

Here's a newer pic of her working on her own ride. Just needed a tune-up, but she's a tad short to get to the plugs. At least she let it cool down a little!

Yeah! I remember your post and I always refer to your daughter doing it when telling people how easy it is.

Temporary Hi-jack...




Thanks Bernie!

I managed to get a connection out here in western Iraq (I'm deployed out here, supporting the USMC) and thought I'd stop in and see what's shaking!

Man, I miss my girls, my own bed (not to mention a real bathroom) and of course my car!

Everyone have a beer for me (since no alcohol allowed here)! :beer:
