Check prices for new rotors, mine was only about $10 more than turning, my last two trucks (84 Chevy, 94 Nissan)and wife's SUV (02 dodge) were the same and I haven't had rotors turned in 25 years

WTH are y'all driving

Correct. Expect to spend about $500 for both axles.

This; and it speeds up the process quite a bit if you're doing it yourself, you can just pull off and replace.

My 1999 Ford Explorer when I change rotors and pads is labor/cost of pads/$100 axle for rotors. Labor is usually set price and whatever pads I want good/better/best.
Link Posted: 1/18/2015 11:50:48 AM EST
I didn't think a lot of places even bothered with turning rotors/drums anymore. It's usually easier and/or cheaper to just put new ones on.
Link Posted: 1/18/2015 11:51:14 AM EST
Turning rotor I get mine done for free and the pads i get at cost so I can't help you unless you want to drive up here and do it at my shop.

Depends on the vehicle. What are you looking to get the work done on?

Go to 1A Auto .com and find theirYoutube video for your vehicle, order rotors and pads from them. Spend a couple of hours and save a couple hundred bucks.

People still get rotors turned?

It was cheaper on my 3/4 ton just to get new ones.

There aint a lot of meat on these newer truck's rotors TO turn....legally

I've had to replace entirely the last 4-5 times I did brakes over the last 15 or so years

The shop I used to work at, about $275 for a complete brake job, using plain jane Bendix semi metallic pads and turning the rotors, if they have enough meat on them.
Link Posted: 1/18/2015 12:00:49 PM EST
I've always found it's cheaper to just replace them myself. It only takes a few minutes for most trucks.

Last week I paid 275 to have the front axle done, but that included new rotors and one new caliper.

Correct. No one in our area turns rotors. Our shop doesn't even have a brake lathe anymore.
Link Posted: 1/18/2015 12:04:04 PM EST
Buy new rotor/pads and save a ton. If your vehicle was made in the last decade replacing pads/rotors should be easy.
Link Posted: 1/18/2015 12:05:06 PM EST
Rockauto has front and rear rotor/pad kits for only $234. $136 for just the front rotors/pads.Why bother turning?

Yup.....Rock Auto has worked well for me , so far. I can get name brand , US made parts , delivered , for the same $$$ as locally bought , asian-made junk. Front end parts are a huge savings online for Moog , Timken,etc,etc....
Link Posted: 1/18/2015 12:11:03 PM EST
Everytime I "saved" money by having rotors turned they warped again in short order.

The turning process removes metal making them more prone to overheating and warping. Pay the extra for new rotors and install them and new pads yourself. Buy some new caliper pins and lube them and be sure to clean the slides with a wire brush and lube them with some good brake grease.

Fuck yeah ....... buy new rotors and pads ..... install yourself, it is so fucking easy to do.
Make sure you buy quality rotors and check that they are NOT warped.
Torque down wheel nuts according to manufacturers instructions. ( I have seen people do it wrong and end up with a warped rotor. )


High quality rotors and changes pads before you HAVE TO and the rotors will last forever.
Let the pads wear out and go metal on metal ...... shame on you!


I buy used vehicles primarily ...... first things I do when I get them home.

1) New brake pads AND rotors.
2) Service all fluids - including flushing brake fluid.





Link Posted: 1/18/2015 12:12:27 PM EST
Don't bother turning them, just buy new. Most places don't bother anymore and most rotors aren't made thick enough to even turn. And most rotors don't have enough thickness to make turning worth it or even possible.

They make them thin to cut down on weight or cost.

I like putting on high performance aftermarket units ..... beefier and better performance.

F150 good quality front rotors a couple months ago were $40 each.

Very good quality pads on ebay were $26 a set. Front or rear.

Installation, lets be generous and say 2 hours for just the front.

So, that's about $100 vs. what the everybuddy else is paying.

Also, I know the work was done right and nothing else was screwed with to get me to return to be suckered again.

Link Posted: 1/18/2015 12:18:28 PM EST
You can almost get new rotors for the same price or cheaper then getting the old ones turned.

Also why would you pay to have your brakes done? They are one of the most simple things to change out.

Rotors are too thin to turn most of the time. Fuel efficiency regs made turning rotors a thing of the past. I just did new pads and rototrs myself for under $200 including buying a c-clamp, caliper grease, and brake cleaner. Took about 2 hours, less time than I would have spent taking it to a shop.

Also, my dewalt cordless impact might not be as strong as my air tools, but it sure I handy for a brake job!


ETA: Advance Auto Parts had a buy online, pick up in store 20% off offer, not sure if its valid still or you have one nearby.

You can buy OEM pads on Ebay for about $40, and a set of new OEM rotors for an additional $100 or so.

If you haven't done a brake job, it's easy. Not much more difficult than changing a tire. Half the work is getting the tire on/off the car. Lots of videos on Youtube.

You are two generous.
I do brakes on my gravel driveway with a floor jack and jack stands.
I can do pads only on both sides of the front in about 30 minutes.
The only power tool I have is the impact wrench to remove the lugs.
Throw in rotors and add another 30 minutes.

Keep in mind I have experience with this and when I go out to do the brakes I take all needed tools, parts and supplies out with me the first time.
Running back and forth for stuff is a wast of time.

DRUM BRAKES are another story - take a little longer and yes I have vehicles with drums on the rear.

Rock Auto sells pad and rotor kits w/hardware for pretty reasonable prices....I think the kit for my Ranger [including ceramic pads] was 250.
Link Posted: 1/18/2015 12:56:20 PM EST
few moths ago i did the front on my truck for around $285 for slotted rotors and hawk lts pads. last i priced turning rotors it was like maybe $35-50 each rotor to turn at oreillys.

if i went cheep and got cheep solid rotors i could of shaved off about $100 on that price.

Easier said than done, in some cars.

It took the guy who did the rear bearings on my Miata like 4 hours, and he had done it at least a dozen times and had a lot of trick shit I didn't own. I've never been so happy to write a guy a check. What a bitch those things were.

would agree depending on car/truck. mine now uses hubs that bolt on to the spindle that are like $200 each where as my old truck were part of the process when replacing the rotor as they were built in to them.

my three jeeps with the dana front have those.

around a hundred each side for me. ive only had to do it on one axle so far. had to do a rear wheel bearing on a dana 35 with the c-clip axle. it wasn't hard just a lot of work. rented the tool from oreallys to pull the bearing..

the ford ranger front was easy and only 10 dollars a side.

I love inexspensive cars.

My sedan stops on the cheapest rotors and pads on the market. $20/axle for rotors, $14/axle for pads. Labor was free.

Stops just fine.
Link Posted: 1/18/2015 1:13:49 PM EST
I havent had rotors turned in over a decade. Run'm till they are out of spec and need replaced and be done with it. YMMV

And you can then just have 2 sets of rotors, get the old ones turned and waiting for the new to wear out then slap back on
