  2. Wrong rotors ordered?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi folks, sorry about being a fair weather member, I gotta pop in more often, anyway, I think I got the wrong rotors from 'the rack' for the front of my '04 Arc. This is the first time I've messed with my front rotors and I can't figure out if I've got the wrong rotors or if my hub and rotor...

  6. rotor tolerance

    9-5 Workshop
    I've searched the forum and can't seem to find out what the thickness tolerance is for front and rear brake rotors. :confused: I'm replacing the pads and just want to make sure the rotors are not too worn. I'll need to borrow a tool to measure thickness from work - unless you all can...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Ok so I went in for an oil change and told them to check my rear brakes because they were making a noise while driving (w/o brake applied). They said I needed new pads/rotors, so, ok. BUT, during the fix they came back and told me that I had a frozen rear caliper and they couldnt get it off...
  9. Do I need new pads to go with my new rotors?

    9-5 Workshop
    I just ordered some new Zimmerman rotors because the rotors I currently have are warped pretty badly (lots of vibration when stopping). My question is do I need to get new pads? I replaced the pads about a year (~15,000 miles) ago and have heard mixed opinions on whether its necessary to...

    The Lounge
    Hi Guys, I wanted to post a link to an article I recently wrote about how to choose street and track brake pads. I know this has always been a popular topic on the forums, and one that creates a lot of confusion. As a representative for some of the top brake manufacturers in the aftermarket...

    Hello once again. I recently reached the 90k km on my odometer and it is time to change my braking setup (rotors and pads). I have been hearing a lot of good feedback from R1 concepts. I have visited their site and found some incredibly good prices on drilled and slotted rotors along with 4...
  13. 2004 9-3 Arc, brakes feel intermittently tough

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey all, I replaced the pads all around on my 2004 9-3 Arc about 1000 mi ago. I kept the old rotors on because a) they were not warped at all and appeared to have plenty of life left on them and b) 3/4 of the rotors were totally rusted onto the car and I couldn't get them to move one bit...
