Question about 1998 Lexus LS 400
What is the question???? I will guess...please don't hammer my raiting for not answering the "right question" ...
So, if you are doing a break job, and you are wondering if the rotors need to be resurfaced or machined? okay, first thing you need to do is to take a micrometer and check the thickness of the rotor. There will be minimum machineable thicknesess. If your rotor is thinner than the minnimum allowable thickness, you will not be able to machine it, and it will have to be replaced. Looking at the year of your vehicle, when were the breaks last done on it? if it was quite a while ago...you might want to consider replacing the rotors as well. If the question is on how to replace the break pads, i can't realy help you too much there, i can tell you the very basics, but you kinda just have to see it. So if you get stuck, take one side apart at a time.... If you need help on doing the actual pad change, ask back. but the basics are that you have to unbolt the caliper (leave the braket on) and pull the pads out while making sure to keep and eye on how the little springs/clips go in (if you have them, not all vehicles do). Also, caution on which break pads you put where. Some types are specific on which side of the rotor they have to be on. If this is the case, they "usually" give you instructions....Best of luck
