I had decent brake pads, then spent two hours going less than five miles per hour in traffic. Drove home with my front wheels sounding like a snowplow. Next day, I needed pads, rotors, and a caliper.

got to save the rotors? If you waited a bit longer would be a cool anodize blue. Is that a duralast box.
