Front Disc Brake Rotor

While driving my jeep last week to "Town" I noticed a scraping sound when I drove next to another car or wall.

When I got home i jacked up the front end and turned the wheels by hand. Sure enough Scappy-do.

I then pulled my RF wheel off and took a closer look. I found that the inside caliper has badly grooved the rotor and that is the cause of the sound.

I plan on replacing pads and that rotor, I dont think "turning" is possible.

So my question is should I also replace the LF rotor as well? Even though that side is ok?

replace it and keep the good parts as emergency spares. if you dont replace it, you'll end up doing brake jobs at different times from here on out

Pads come in sets, two for each side, just turn the LF rotor and put new pads on both sides, if it ain't broke don't fix it!

Damn, didn't your pads have those little metal pieces that cause squeaks when the pad runs thin? They should have warned you long before it was gouging your rotors.
