Question about Chevrolet Astro
When purchasing rotors choose the part store that gives you a choice of two different rotors (NAPA) purchase the rotors that are more expensive with a two year warranty on them ( always retain your receipts for warranty) then buy the ceramic metallic type brake pads they are more expensive but I have found that I get about 4 years service out of them. Always replace rotors when doing the brakes do not have them resurfaced, my experience after doing 40 to 50 brake jobs in recent years has been that the newer vehicles posses fairly thin rotors that after being resurfaced heat up an warp faster than a new set so I don't bother anymore with resurfacing especially when inspecting the rotor you see heat fracture cracks on the surfaces. Always clean off the protective coating provided on the rotors before installing with rubbing alcohol or acetone. When braking on hills apply brakes in spaced out intervals if possible to allow the vented discs to cool even for two to three second intervals this helps more than most are aware of.
Good Luck and be safe.
