Question about 2005 Ford F 250 Super Duty
One of my rotors is fine. the other is chewed up. i work in a machine shop. what is the min. thickness of the rotor if i turn it down?
Hi from uk i assume the rotor/disc is scoured due to brake pads worne out ? here in uk it is not the practice to machine down/clean up discs because what you take off disc you forfeat the life of pads and you run possibility of the caliper piston nearing its travel if pads wear too low again and run risk of fluid leak/s also the thinner disc will heat up quicker resulting in brakes imbalance ? for your safety and others? renew both discs and pads have seen machined discs crack and literally plane away the new pads prematurely do the right thing?
