|PStov98TJ||True. I did have someone around to ask questions too. Always good to have friends (or at least ones with uncles that own a shop they let you work on your jeep at )|

|StephenB||Well, I'm new to vehicle DIY, so I haven't really had experience with brakes so I don't know what the divots are.. And I haven't checked the pads either.|

|UnlimitedLJ04||at 15 yrs old, how much pad is left, how much rotor is left, and how deep are the divots in the knuckles? you may find it useful to take the wheels off and actually look/measure.|

Should I replace brakes?
I have what I'm assuming to be OEM front and rear brakes, so they're 15 years old... They are rusted to the point where its difficult to discern caliper from rotor. The thing is, the brakes work spectacularly, with only occasional squeaking. The BIG question is, should I replace them, even if they're still functioning properly? Or can I knock it down a couple rungs on my to-do list?
