Bad Rotors on 2005 Chevy

1 of 1 people found this helpful.

well, if the pads wear down past the squealers (to remind you) they will start to grind steel on steel...grindy-rumble type of sound....crikey, just buy NEW calipers and NEW rotors and be on the road today~ this here is boilerplate work...nothing special about this~

If they are grinding and not squealing it is already too late to save the rotors, like Judge stated it is best to just go a brake job. Better check the rears too.

If you have good pads and do not hear a grinding or squealing but your front rotors are bad you will get a vibration thru your steering wheel under hard braking.

    How do you know your cv joints are bad? Grinding noise on right when driving but not a popping sound. Break pads are 1/2 good still. Repacked grease but still loud.
