anyone know a good shop to resurface rotors? i just got some used rotors and pads at a good price and they are pretty rusted on the surface, so any help would be greatly appreciated....
Thanks!

do you know give or take how much this will cost? should/can i do anything to the brake pads also, since i resurface teh rotors? i dont think the rotors are warped i just think it has a lot of rust, so should i just install them and drive until the rust comes off, like after the rain? they were sitting under the elements for a while, not sure how long though.....
Thanks!

well if the pads are used, you should just throw them out and buy new ones, NEVER put used pads on a RESURFACED/NEW rotors, when i got my rotors resurfaced it was something like 30 or 60 can't remember exactly, not too much, but ya, just make sure to NOT put used pads on that!!

see the way i see it is if i resurface the rotors i need new pads....but if i just drive the rust off than the surface of teh rotors, the pads should still be uniform to the rotors.... and the more money i can save the better, i am spending way too much these days.....heh....

you should be able to get the pads from collins as well...as for re-surfacing the rotors, i beleive they are only like 30-40 bucks...the base it on size...from what i remember....
