Research on Brake Rotors for Ford Crown Victoria
For your Crown Victoria to stop as it should, you need to have brake rotors and pads that are in good condition. Unfortunately, these parts tend to wear out over time, and unless you plan on regularly replacing your Crown Victoria brake rotors, you could find braking difficult and driving your Ford dangerous.
What are the Brake Rotors?
Disc brakes are used on all four wheels on most vehicles made today. The discs are also called rotors, and they are attached to your wheels by fitting over the lug bolts. When your wheels turn, so do the rotors. The main function of disc brakes is to get the rotors to stop and also the wheels. On your Crown Victoria, brake pads close around the rotors to stop them from turning, but when they close the semimetallic surface of the pads rubs against the metal of the rotors. This metal-on-metal contact creates friction and heat. The friction causes drag on the rotors, which eventually stops them. Though it may sound like a long process, it happens in less than a second when you slam on the brakes, but only if your pads and rotors have enough metal on their surfaces to work.
How Long Do Brakes Last?
Your brake rotors will last longer than your brake pads. Sometimes, when you replace your brake pads, you'll need to have your brake rotors resurfaced by a mechanic, but occasionally, the warping and pitting is too severe for resurfacing, and you'll have to replace the brake rotors on your Crown Vic. On average, you can get 50,000 miles from your brake pads, but your brake rotors may last up to 70,000 miles. It's best to check both brake pads and rotors whenever you get your tires rotated or oil changed.
Signs of Bad Brake Rotors
Your brakes will let you know when they need to be changed, if you pay attention to the signs. Brake pads make a squealing sound, but if you ignore this noise and continue to drive with bad brake pads, you can wear down the rotors even faster. Bad rotors will grind or growl when you stop, and eventually, you may need more distance to stop. This can be potentially dangerous, especially in situations where you have to brake quickly. Regularly inspecting your brake rotors for pitting and other signs of wear and replacing them as soon as you see these signs can ensure that you'll get the most from your brakes.
Cost to Replace Ford Crown Victoria Brakes
Regardless of where you take your Ford Crown Victoria to get new brake rotors, you will automatically have new brake pads installed. Though this increases the cost, old brake pads will wear down new rotors faster. It's best for your car to have new brake rotors and pads. The cost for a set of 2010 Crown Vic rear brakes, including rotors and pads, costs $296 to $451, with parts and labor from a mechanic, but if you install your own rotors, which many people choose to do, you can save money. When you purchase your own brake pads and rotors from PartsGeek.com, you'll also save money on those parts, boosting your savings.
