The minimum thickness should be on the rotor. If your feeling any pulsing I suggest just replacing the rotors with new, they only cost about $35
thanks for the tips
The chilton manual states: " However, for 1994-99 vehicles with ABS, after bleeding the brake system you must perform an "Auto Bleed" sequence, using a Tech 1® or equivalent scan tool. If you do not have access to a suitable scan tool, your vehicle will probably have to be towed to a shop with the proper diagnostic equipment to have the procedure performed."
Since I am replacing the brake hoses at the line connection, will a lot of air enter the lines so that simple one-man bleeding wont be enough, and then I would need to go to the dealer?
(just worried since I live on a hill and I would need brakes to get to the dealer
Just thinking... Is there a way to trigger the abs without the tool? I know sometimes when I start my car the abs cycles for a sec, but I dont know how often it does it.
Re: rotors, I remembered I replaced the rotors on my last pad change. They should be good.
