However, there are also two very specialized services that we provide that others have come to depend on as well to help them save time and money while ensuring safe performance.
Rotor Turning Services
Our team of highly-trained specialists can turn your rotors for you. Some car owners believe that they need to replace their rotors every time they do a brake job. However, the truth is that this is not always the case. If your brake rotors still have enough metal remaining and there are no cracks, severe grooving, rusting, or hard spots present, you might be a candidate for rotor turning or resurfacing. If your brake discs are still smooth, they might not even require resurfacing, so it pays to have them checked out by a professional. Just bring your vehicle into LaCava auto parts and get an inspection before resurfacing or replacing.
Resurfacing or turning the rotors helps to restore a flat and even surface. This is important to minimize vibrations when the brakes are being used and to provide maximum brake pad friction for better and safer stopping. When you install new pads on a rotor that is grooved or otherwise damaged, the pads will not make full contact with the brake disc, causing the pads to wear down quickly and significantly decrease the life of the new brake pads. While rotor turning services can be done in many situations, if there is not enough metal remaining or if the rotors are damaged, it is best to purchase new rotors from our auto supply services in Fall River, MA and just replace them outright.
Current rates for car rotor turning is $16, and car drums are $12. Current rates for truck rotor turning is $20, and truck drums are $14. If you have any questions about rotor turning services or would like to schedule services at LaCava Auto Parts, just give us a call at 508-676-1951.
