I didn't say, but you should, of course, check the thickness of the pads, just in case the guy that said your pads are done is right. If he is right and you're down to metal, just at one point, you do need pads. But, if you can see the pad thickness and it's above a few mm, you've got time yet. Just look carefully just to be safe.Cool, i appreciate the help guys
Not entirely true. I just did my front pads. The rotors were flat, I had not vibration, just needed new pads (well, and in my case new calipers, but at 210K miles or so, I can't complain about needing some new parts!).Anytime you change the pads, you need to either replace the rotor or resurface it or you WILL have problems like this. See the old pad wore down small grooves and reshaped the rotor. When you put the new pads on the shapes dont match up and thus you have abnormal wear patterns.
If the pads are still good for 20K to 30K, then the rotors are okay too. You need rotors with the next set of pads.No i didn't do anything to the rotors besides wipe them off with a dry microfiber towel. i was planning on replacing my rotors at the next pad change in about 20-30k
