I think my rotors are warped so If I replaced my Rotors do I need to change my pads as well?? I just got my pads like 10k miles ago and they still have a lot of life left. So i rather just keep them instead of wasting them.
What do you guys think?

Regards,

BigO

you'll usually want to replace your pads when you replace your rotors.

New pads will bed in quicker and easier than re-using your old pads. Your old pads might still be serviceable but they are worn into the taper of your old rotors.

I see, well i just checked out my rotors and I can't really tell if they are warped, I touched it with my finger and there is a small lip on the outer edge of the rotor and a smaller one on the inner edge. But the symptoms that I get when I drive seem like warped rotors. Are wrapped Rotors not visible to the eye?? Also anyone know how many mm till the Rotors are done?

what are your symptoms? you should use a dial caliper and measure the rotor in prob 12 diff places along the surface (prob like hours on a clock) and write them down and compare. i think the service manual says front should be like .94 inches or something

I don't know they just seem like they grab like normal and sometimes I get some small vibration. I am gonna have one of my friends that's a Mazda tech look at it tomorrow, so we will see.
