Does anyone know if there is anything tricky abotu changing the rotors on a 1995 chevy caprice 9c1 (police)? Ive fixed a few things and found that there are some big differences ion certain parts. Also, are there brands of rotors that are better/worse? price ranges so much and i dont know the difference. thanks
car shakes up and down when i brake, the faster im going the more it shakes, and i know its not the shocks- sounds liek the rotors right?

For the most part I have not seen a significant difference in brand and/or quality of brake rotors when it comes to the durability of the metal itself. The difference in price comes from certain rotors being directional and are specific to which side of the car that they are made for. Also, the specific part depends on whether the car is equipped with an ABS. In this case the rotor would have teeth on the inside of the hub in order for the sensor to detect the speed of the wheel.

there is nothing tricky about changing rotors on your car. just make sure you open the bleeder valve when you colapse the caliper. (one at a time) don't let air into the system ! hold the pressure on the caliper and tighten the bleeder BEFOR you release the caliper. as for rotor prices..........basically you get what you pay for ! use the middle of the road price and you useually can't go wrong. Why do you need to change the rotors? that usually means there is a nother problem!

Another trick to reseting the caliper and NOT getting any air in the system is open the cap on the master cylinder this will allow the fluid to go up to (and possibly over flow out of the cylinder but it will keep all air out of the brake system.
