Bosch Rotors - lucky or not?

Recommended Posts

Dropped into a junk store yesterday.  I didn't expect to really find anything.  I was just wasting some time.  I found a set of brake rotors (new in boxes).  Copied down the numbers and went home to the Internet.  Pumped in the numbers, and BANG!  They fit the front of my wife's Journey!  So, I went back and offered him 65 bucks for them both.  He wanted 40 each, but he took the deal.  I also picked up a drivers side Bosch wiper for 6 bucks.  Wipers sell for 26 bucks here and the rotors sell on Amazon Dot CA for about 73 bucks each.  The brakes on her Journey are the single piston caliper type (older smaller brakes).

 

What a lucky day!  Thank you God!

 

When getting the pads, should we get ceramic or metallic?  I have no idea what the difference is or wether one is better than another.

 

I hope some of my luck rubs off on you guys today.

Make sure you have the rotors checked before installing them. Could be warped or worn beyond useful life.

They are brand new, never used, still in the original boxes.  I think I will get Wagner ceramic pads for them.  Unless someone can suggest something else that would work better.  I don't know shit from grease about vehicles.  All suggestions are welcome.

Oh. I interpreted “junk store” as a junk yard. Wagners are fine.
