I was getting/feeling/hearing what I would say was slight "grinding". Not bad,but noticeable. Replaced the back pads,which is where I think the gremlin is comin' from. The insides of the rear rotors are slightly pitted. Rotors are original,as were the pads until about a month ago. Duralast Gold Metallic front and back.

Do you think that minimal pitting could be the culprit?

Front rotors are a few years old,timken hubs more recent,and pads even newer.

Thanx for any feedback Smile

Rust belt salt wear?

You did get them machined before installing the new pads?

I'd replace them with some original ones from another car preferred not from ones in the rust belt of America





New ones tend to warp very easy and are "one time use"

meaning it's just the very minimal thickness.

I tend to agree with this, but I just get new rotors and pads at the same time.
