Hey guys finally got around to replacing the front rotors on the Excusion. The stock rotors, after 18xK miles were typically warped, and getting worse. Actually only one of the rotors had a problem, the other seemed more or less OK. I was half way expecting the pads to have significant wear as well, but they did not, replaced them anyway since I had already bought new ones, figure why not start fresh
So far, so good, the new rotors are cross drilled and slotted, and the pads are ceramic, pedal is very firm and predictable. Hard to tell just yet if there will be a REAL difference in stoppimg ability, it's too early to tell, I want to let everything ease into place then I'll start stomping on them
But so far, I'm lovin' it. SS braided lines are next on the list.
The whole set up was less than $200.00 and only about 45 mins. worth of work.
I also did the same thing to my dads 93 F15
yeah...I know, but it will be the last set of pads and rotors he will need, the ones that were on his truck were original, and WAY past replacement time, those big rotors on his old beater looked AWESOME, but hey he's happy, and so am I.
