Front brake replacement?
I've been having some grinding when braking at highway speeds for the last, oh 6k miles or so. The Jeep is at my mechanic for an oil change and service, its got just shy of 28k miles.
He took it out on the highway and checked it out, felt what I felt. Apparently the rotors are pretty gummed up as are the pads, rotors are scored pretty badly, and there is a ton of corrosion on the hubs, the rotors were actually fused on. We decided the best thing to do was to go ahead and replace the rotors and pads.
Has anybody else had to replace the front brakes on these Jeeps yet? What sort of life did you have? He was really surprised by how bad the rotors were, said it looked like the brakes on a much older vehicle. This is my personal mechanic whom I trust, so I'm not getting screwed around by the dealer.
