New rotors

Just replaced my front rotors, old ones had head spots... Replaced them with slot and drilled and coated with black sinc. Painted the calipers red with ceramic calipers paint. What you think
Tomorrow I'm doing the rear... Hope they work good lol

Yeah, 1 yr warranty. So not bad. I so wanted the American muscle but at this time they were out off my price range at almost 900 for the slotted and drilled ones. Maybe in the near future...

Make sure that you ease in the breaking first 100 miles then after that you can brake as hard as you can

Yeah they stay black it's not too Noticeable. I would post a picture but its already dark.

Just a reminder you need the brake kit to do the back brakes.

What's brake kit? Is that only for 05+?
I've heard good things bout them rotors on eBay. Everybody I've talked to hasn't had any problems.

Yeah you need the kit borrow one from autozone... So easy to use the tool, I'm guessing the 05+ u need it.. Took the car for a spin, first 3 miles feels weird stopping but after that they feel way better and looks great... Best 200 bucks ever spend for all 4 rotors and brake pads...

You can't use c-clamp? I've never looked at back ones but will be getting new rotors in couple months

Not for the back ones on the 05+, they need to be rotated back in... Works almost like the clamp... Stop my an autozone and ask to borrow their brake kit, i just put 60 dollars for insurance, once return they refund you the money back to your credit card.. Basically it's free rental.

No you cant because the ebrake is a part of the caliper so it has to auto adjust so your ebrake works properly

Melloyello,

Nice ride, i zoomed in and notice your rotors are they suppose to be facing that direction. By any chance you don't have the left side on the right side... I checked my instructions and believe they need to face the other way...not sure if I'm clear in what I'm trying to say...

Ive always ran my rotors that way. It helps draw the dust inwards and behind the rotors. Our Carrera runs same direction as well. I figured if Porsche puts it on that way (and Mercedes) its ok for my little Ford

94+ needs the tool for the rear...i bought the $11 universal tool and keep it in my tool chest. i've used it on a couple fords, a mazda, a VW, and a chevy...it comes in handy
