Question about 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee
When i put on my brakes it seem like i can feel the warp in the braking. It seems to kick the peddle back as the warp passes the brake shoes, i'm thinking because the warp needs more space to pass through than the rest of the rotor, i was thinking maybe it would be cheaper to have them cut. What do you thing?
I just bought a 2001 jeep grand cherokee loredo with the 4.7 V8...and i had the same problem after doing some research it turnes out that jeep grand cherokee from 1999 to 2002 had a problem with the front brakes. the front calipers where made by teves and they are not good they tend to warp the rotors, a company called akebono fixed the problem. i purchased 2 new calipers from autozone (make sure its the akebono ones) 2 new rotors and pads. installed them myself and problem solved... cutting the old rotors is not going to work the main prob is the calipers. hope this helps.

You may be able to have them machined (re-surfaced), but if they are worn beyond minimum spec - you will need to replace them.

It depends on if there is enough metal to have them turn. often right out of the box they need to be machined. you can often pick up a set at a junk yard and have them turned.
hard to say which is cheaper as i'm uncertain of the cost of new rotors.
