Question about 2005 Ford Expedition
A brake repair shop told my daughter that when they replace the rear brakes pads on her Ford Expedition it is also necessary to replace the rotors because "the rear brakes on Expeditions are soft". Is this there any truth to this, or are they just trying to get her to pay for additional work and parts?
The rear pads are usualy harder than the front and the harder the pads the more wear there is on the rotors Unless the rotors were worn to the point of replacement they could have had them skimmed.Being soft doesnt make much sense.Have an 03 ba falcon and only replaced our rotors after doing 125000ks The expidition is a similar beast that used the same brake system.Get the rotors skimmed and go to a slightly softer pad to extend rotor life
