    Napa and Autozone got them for about 45 bucks each. My dad (grumpy farmer) says they will warp the first time they get wet. Mine have already been turned twice. Any suggestions? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    I have the Autozone rotors on my rear 14 bolt for 6 months or longer, and they have been fine. I got rotors for a 1978 3/4 ton 4x4 suburban. They've gotten wet many, many times and they are still straight.

    One way rotors can get warped is by tightening the tires improperly. If the sequence is off, or if they are over tightened, the rotors can warp ---- just a thought.

    go to napa

    get the united life time ones, even if they do warp wich they shouldnt, you just take em back, and youll never need to pay to have em turned again either, just take them back and get new ones! get the life time pads while your at it, and do em all at the same time /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
