I was thinking I'd do the work in front of The Cage. The guys outside of there are always so willing to help out in any way possible.

Yeah, I got all that crap the other day. Not a fun walk from the Light Rail to the PATH, then on to my apt carrying this crap!

I'm working from home ... I guess the cage you two are referring is different? Was interested to see if it was a place I could do work on my truck.

I remember once standing outside the Cage when two guys gave me the creeper. I couldnt walk straight for a week.

Why not work on it at your parents house. When I lived in hoboken I would drive to my mom's in hillsdale to do all that crap

OK so now that we established that I need one new rotor, do you guys think it makes sense to upgrade to the EBC vented rotors and EBC pads now that one needs replacing? Pads-wise I've read general consensus is to stick with genuine.

Options are 4, 6, or 7 as far as I see. Other recommendations are welcome.

Need to buy one or more of the following:
1. http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/STC2952EBC.cfm
2. http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/STC9188EBCX.cfm
3. http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/SFP000270G.cfm
4. http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/9995F.cfm
5. http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/9983DEFFR.cfm
6. http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/9995EBC.cfm
7. http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/9995A.cfm

They live off OBX, so that'd be like an 8 hour trip.

I thought you had like an Accord or Prelude when you lived in Hoboken.

Barry - where did you ride round here? Anywhere good? The usual Blue Mtn / Stillwell woods lack any real hills!

This thread will help you when changing the discs (Rotors to you lot! )



and this one for just doing the pads, but by the looks of the pictures, your discs are scored pretty bad, FUBAR'd even.

Jamie, thanks a lot for the tutorial links! Pics are always way better than the diagrams.

What's your timeframe? If you need a driveway - you know where mine is. I've got a couple extra jackstands and some tools. I've got no experience changing brakes and rotors, but would love to watch and help.

July is kinda hard on me because of set plans, but August is open for me as of now. Let me know.

I grew up in Morristown and can attest for the biking out there through Bernardsville, and on out to Chester and Gladstone.

Thanks for the offer, Gery. I don't know if I could make it out there though.

I guess it would be stupid to drive it an hour like this, right? Looking at pictures 3 and 7, the sandwich plate in the caliper that is pushing against the rotor will not be replaced, so both that plate and the rotor are being eaten away when I drive it.
