well a buddy of mine picked up 89 f250 4x4 last week for a firewood truck, he got a pretty good deal i think its a good solid running truck that had a bit of a brake bounce when you used them so i told him your gonna have to do the brakes and all should be good like what can you expect for 700 bucks well he just sent me this pic of what the front rotors look like :eek: :eek: :eek: who the hell would ever let it get this bad, keep in mind the guy drove this truck everyday [16]

Seen a YJ halfway through the vents but the guy and his family brought me many vehicles with brake problems they had the rear adjuster on a ford tempo got all the way around in the drum. His fathers ford explorer was metal on metal when be brought it to me to do the brakes then his wifes ford explorer was metal on metal when he brought it to me.

Who needs breaks that's what trees & ditches are for.

I had my rear rotor on my land cruiser split. Cracks went from the cooling vane down the the lug nut holes. They were 6 month old OEM rotors. Toyota replaced and fixed everything that was damaged.

Yup, it's pretty pathetic when they drive in with "the noise JUST started" and the rotor is worn half way through the fins. :rolleyes:

At the shop I work at, we had a customer bring in his Chevy Venture minivan for tires, in the process we found he needed new front brakes....he didn't get it done, three days later, same van comes back, with a horrific grinindg noise from the left front....he tried to do his own brakes....forgot to install the outboard pad....I found it on the cowl...new rotors and calipers later......
