If I happen to run across a proper donor for the big brake upgrade, what should I be looking for in rotor thickness? I don't want to buy used rotors if they are used up. What are the upper and lower thickness numbers I should be looking for? Hope I have worded that clearly. Thanks!

Thanks catfuzz. If I know before hand what I'm getting, this is good advice. I'll keep that in mind.

The minimum thickness is stamped on every rotor but sometimes rust or crud can obscure the numbers. If all else fails, you can provide the year/make/model to a parts store that turns rotors and they can tell you the specs.

That's a lot of numbers! I like 26 mm and 24.6 mm. Easy to remember. One more tool to fill the tool bag when I go hunting at pick n pull.

Thank you for the info. you smart feller.

Rotor thickness new should be 26 mm or 1.0236220472452 ", Minimum thickness is 24.6 mm or 0.9685039370089201". Take your digital caliper with you to measure when shopping at the JY!

hmmm, are you sure of those numbers? That's not even 2 mm difference between min and max wear.
