or so it would seem.
After installing the EBC Greenstuff pads without turning the very well grooved rotors my results have been less than favorable. Stopping power is very poor and there is a VERY loud metal to metal squeak. This is by no means the fault of the pads, but more my fault for not turning the rotors. So, I went ahead and order a set of PowerSlot rotors for the front that should be delivered today and I will install them tonight.
About turning (or resurfacing) your rotors from this article
In many instances, resurfacing the rotors and drums is a good idea to restore a smooth, flat friction surface for the new linings.
My rotors, as I would have expected, were fairly well grooved, which is not a flat, smooth surface. There is also a fairly good chance that I’ve got a bit of warping too caused by heat from track days, canyon runs and idiots on Ortega Hwy.
More after I get the rotors installed. Like I mentioned earlier, I’m not expecting the install to cause any problems.
