Mustang II Rotors

Doing a brake job on my Sweet-34. It has a Mustang II front end. Do you have to have brand new out of the box rotors turned? My know it all buddy says YES!!!!! I don't want opionions....I want someone that really knows the answer to this question.

Have a great one...............Sweet-34

In the old days it was always yes. Todays rotors are much thinner and done on more accurate production machines. Most times they can be used right out of the box. A few of them don't have enuff meat to turn.

to turn or not ot turn, that is the question?

Install the NEW rotors and see if the brakes pulse when you apply them. If they do not pulse and they don't pull you have no problems so leave well enough alone. Get back to us if you have a problem with the particulars.

I'm with TM454. Try them first. Can't do any harm, just will have irritating pulsing if not straight. I rarely have rotors surfaced on my cars, even if they are rivet cut. In fact now that I think about it, I have never had a rotor turned! I have replaced one a few years ago on my daughter's '86 Caprice because a rivet had cut clean into the internal fins of the rotor. She tends to get the maximum life from a set of brakes!!

It also depends on the quality of the rotors. If they came out of a plain white box (CHI-COM), don't expect much.

It's easier to just mount them and measure the runout before hanging the calipers.
