Rotor Prep?

898 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  jas88
I am going to be changing my front pads today. The rotors and pads are pretty much brand new, but ever since I got them changed, I have this really loud grinding sound when coming to a full stop. I am changing the pads to ceramic, and I also wanted to properly prep the rotors because I heard that it would result in a quieter brake as well. Does anyone know the steps for prepping the rotors?

You are going to need them turned on a machine if you are replacing the pads. Otherwise your pads will wear about 3x as fast as normal (ask me how I know). If your rotors are close to new then they won't have to take off but just a little bit of material to reface them.
