Hi,

Minimum thickness is stamped into the rotor. Use a wire brush to remove the rust buildup and you'll see the specifications.

Take care!!!!

Minimum rotor thickness


I don't know the min thickness, but I have an outback just like yours and if there is a problem with uneven rotors it's usually cheaper and easier to buy aftermarket at NAPA auto or other supplier (shop around) and trash the old rotors. If the rotors can be turned then keep them for the next brake job and use them then. Outbacks are easy to do about 30 min a side rotor and pads after the wheel is off, just did mine.

How do I remove the rotor on my 1995 dodge 2500 4x4? My problem in the center cap holding it.


Brake Disc (Rotor) REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Raise and safely support the front of the truck with jackstands. Remove the front wheel.
  2. Remove the caliper assembly and support it to the frame with a piece of wire without disconnecting the brake fluid hose.
  3. Remove the hub and rotor assembly.
  4. Install the rotor in the reverse order of removal, and adjust the wheel bearing as outlined in Section 1.
INSPECTION If the rotor is deeply scarred or has shallow cracks, it may be refinished on a disc brake rotor lathe. Also, if the lateral run-out exceeds 0.010 in. (0.25mm) within a 6 in. (152mm) radius when measured with a dial indicator, with the stylus 1 in. (25mm) in from the edge of the rotor, the rotor should be refinished or replaced. A maximum of 0.020 in. (0.5mm) of material may be removed equally from each friction surface of the rotor. If the damage cannot be corrected when the rotor has been machined to the minimum thickness shown on the rotor, it should be replaced. The finished braking surfaces of the rotor must be parallel within 0.007 in. (0.178mm) and lateral run-out must not be more than 0.003 in. (0.076mm) on the inboard surface in a 5 in. (127mm) radius.

Car shimmies when appling brakes at over 40 mph


your brake rotors are warped, if your vehicle is equipped with rear drum brakes have them cleaned and adjusted to keep your front brakes from working too hard and becoming warped, also replacing the front rotors is better than resurfacing them because after bieng resurfaced they are thinner and are more prone to becoming warped again
