Dealer to replace rotors, question about brake pad burnishing

My dealer is going to replace the rotors on my '14 SRT due to noise (TSB 05-006-15), so I'm planning to replace the pads as well with Hawk HPS fronts and StopTech rears. The dealer agreed to not do the pad break-in (burnishing) as described in the TSB. Question is, I will have to drive about 25 miles (90/10 - highway/town) to get the car home. Will I need to clean up or buff the rotors after the drive before installing the new pads? If so, will a 120 grit sanding sponge do the job?

I would use the shiftier and stay off the brakes if you can. Ideally, you want a completely clean and clear pad.

Re: Dealer to replace rotors, question about brake pad burnishing

use a light scotch pad...like a gray one.....to clean up the brake pad surface.

follow the HPS instructions on the pad burnishing.

I like to use an industrial park on the weekends to do my pad set up.

once i am done I can get up on the highway for a nice 30 drive mile home to cool them off.

dont worry about fade or smoke while setting them up/
