Changing Rotors And Pads


Recommended Posts

Hey... doing some work on a GS300 99 for a friend of mine, and before I got started and tinkering... are there any tips and hints on changing the rotors, or is it just like any other car ( i own a honda and do all my work on a honda). Thanks

Very much like any Japanese car, in fact the fronts are easier than some Hondas. However, normally the rotors don't warp on these cars, so unless there is a vibration, I'd just install a set of pads. Don't even machine them if there is no vibration.

Ok... because there is major vibration and it needs to be done... when I drove the car it shakes to the point you almost lose control because of the vibration.

I thought the warping was a common issue... I guess I'm just unlucky here!

Unless the car has been driven very hard, that kind of warping may be due to a stuck slider on the caliper. Check for that of course after you remove the caliper and mounting bracket. New rotors may be the way to go.
