Aunt Flow Forgot i started this fred. Anyway, this is what I found. I just went ahead and replaced all pads and both rotors. Cheap and easy, two beer project.

Pukeolicious 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.

Nubby55 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!

Aunt Flow Oh yeah, good idea. Duh!

rebelBullDawg325 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

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?
