: Machining rotors...

Hey guys,

A couple questions for you about removing the rear rotors..., well... one question actually =)

Do I have to remove the axle nut or are they full floating rotors that just pull off?

My rotors are really grooved up, and the pads are all seperated... might as well throw them on the brake lathe at work :P

Oh, whats the general concencious about Raybestos pads?

Thanks for any help you can offer,

They just pull off once the caliper is removed from around them. If they don't come off easy use the right size bolts to jack them off. You will see the holes for doing this on the hat.

Word of warning original thickness of the rears is 18mm, if they 17mm or less time to replace them.
