where can i find oem rotors for my car that are cheaper than ford? mine are warped for the second time now and i just need new ones. i really dont want to replace all of them, so i only want to go with factory pieces. i think it would look weird with drilled and slotted rotors up front, and the stockers on back. any help?

AutoZone, Advanced Auto Parts and O'Riely's to name a few

How many miles on your last set?

if this is the second time replacing them in a short time I would consider getting slotted rotor from a good brand name.. It sounds like you drive your car VERY hard or have something wrong with your calipers.

ive never replaced them, and i dont drive my car "very" hard. they warped once, and i had them turned now they are warped again. its pretty common for rotors to re-warp because they are structuraly weakend.

Rotors tend to be like tires, you get what you pay for so atleast get mid priced ones.

With your original post it sound like you are on your second new set and that's why I assumed you drove hard. But I got it now :bigthumbsup

Also +1 for jjandascog..

Brembos on Ebay are very affordable and better than OEM, slotted and drilled up front will look fine with stock rears (not that that is a requirement)...why not just upgrade the whole system to a cobra system? 13" rotors and PBR calipers on Ebay are very affordable...you'll just need 17" or larger rims...otherwise go with the Brembos

Oh by the way, driving isn't the only way to warp rotors, some zealot with an impact wrench over torqueing your rims can warp the rotors as well...make sure that isn't the issue

This was going to be my post also, I've seen a ton of them warped from being zapped with an impact. I always torque mine down with a torque wrench now.

ya, i just use the standard 4 way lug wrench and torq them down as best i can, i usualy have to do it a couple times after i put them on cuz they work themselves loose. im a tiny guy so i doubt im getting them too extremely tight.
