Stuff and Things

I finally got around to putting on the new brake rotors for the Forrester. They had been getting really rough recently, I hope it wasn’t because if the new brake calipers I put on a while back. Buuuuuut anyway, this thing is fixed now. NTB quoted me $90 per brake pad and $230 to machine the rotors. I bought 2 new rotors for $70 total. THINK ABOUT THAT.

This process is just one step up from brake pad replacement, just unbolt the calipers and the rotors might just fall off. If they don’t, like they didn’t on the drivers side, then bang on them for a whike. Then get tired of that and break out the PB Blaster and soak the connection between the rotors and hub. Inside those little holes, and around the center.
Then go have lunch. Come back, scrape some rust off, then bang on the back of it again, boom, done.

What is weird about my car is that one side is much more rusty than the other. Don’t understand about that.
