...but I've just begun to notice some signs of rotor warping as well, so the rotors might need to be turned when I get the pads replaced.Joel,It has been my experience that MOST situations involving "my rotors have warped" is actually a situation of "my pads have left uneven deposits on my rotors."I have had luck rectifying this situation by using more aggressive pads and breaking them in with some serious abuse; going out and doing several 80mph to 20mph hard slow-downs in a row. This seems to clean the rotors of any old deposits. Never come to a complete stop during this exercise, and in fact for several minutes afterward, as the very hot pads will leave NEW deposits on the rotors if you let them stop and sit in one place while they're that hot.In fact that's what causes the deposits in the first place... a long hard stop followed by sitting still with the brakes applied. The binder in the pad material melts a bit and leaves residue on the rotor. This condition will feel like warped rotors.Just something to consider,xtn
