2004 VUE 3.5L
Default When rotors get old...

When I changed the front brakes (after nearly 70k miles) on my 04 AWD Vue about 15 months/ 15k miles ago, I only changed just the pads, the rotors looked good, so I left them alone. What are my worries about not dealing with the rotors then and what should I be on the look out for?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

my opinion is that if the rotors are good they are good. i wouldnt worry. if they were warped or rusted you would know when you use the brakes.

If your brake pedal doesn't pulsate when you use the brakes, the brakes should be ok.
FYI, there is a minimum rotor thickness stamped on the rotors outer edge under all the rust scale, replace if they are below this min.
I believe the minimum is front rotors 24.5mm/0.960in.
Front brake rotor thickness new 26mm/1.024in
Rear brake drum diameter new 250mm/9.84in
Rear brake drum discard diameter 251.5mm/9.90in also stamped on the rear drums.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
