Would someone care to expound on the topic of cross-drilled brake
rotors? I need new rotors for my '94 F-150, and I need to know whether
this "upgrade" is a good idea. This is a work truck that does occasional
towing. I've heard that drilled rotors cool faster and therefore last
longer with less warpage. I've also heard that the holes weaken the disc
and cause it to warp more easily. Has anyone had direct experience with
these things?

This came up in the past, I believe the result of these conversations was
that for off roading cross drilling is not good. The reason I believe was
that dirt will get caught in the holes and tear up pads and rotors.

Paul,
I am researching this myself. I have found from my searching that the cross-drilled rotors are not good for our heavy trucks. The best I have heard about is the slotted/vented thpe rotors. I have found them available for our trucks through Powerslot for $98.99 each, not including shipping. Let me know if you want the part numbers and contact address.

Wayne,
This really doesn't pertain to cross drilled or slotted rotors, but I do
have a qeustion pertaining to brakes, my 96 F150's front brakes emit a high
pitch sqeel all of the time. They stop making the noise when I start to
apply the brakes. The pads and rotors look good. are there any suggenstions
to make this very iritating noise go away???

Paul,
They make this blue gooey stuff that they sell. Its basically disc break
quiet. You pull the pads and smear the stuff all over the backing metal of
the pads (the side that goes up against the rotors) and let it dry. Then
reinstall the pads normally. It should quiet it down IMMENSELY. If it doesn't
then your only recourse may be to pull the rotors and have them turned down a
.001 or 2 .

Did you mean the side which contacts the calipers?

I had read somewhere (can't remember where) that drilling is great on
performance apps. But on street vehicles the uneven heating and cooling
cycles and with the fact that they are higher mileage type applications than
on the race cars they have a tendency to crack. Has anyone else witnessed
this in the real world? I have a bike that has em and haven't had any
problems yet, but then it doesn't have a whole lot of miles on it either.

Sounds to me like a caliper contacting the rim. Could also have a caliper
that is not releasing fully. Give both a check.

A high pitch squeal that goes away when braking sounds like the squealer
(wear indicator) on the pads... if the fronts look ok, check the rear if
the rear are disc brakes (I don't have a clue if they are or not) but thats
what it sounds like... see if the little metal tab coming down from the
brake pad is resting on the rotor...

Wayne,
I have a bottle of the disc brake quiet, I did remove the pads and install
the disc brake quiet. They have gotten some what better. I didn't know if
there may be something that I was missing. Most of my experience is on a 65
F100 so alot of the new stuff is somewhat baffling....
Thanks for the input.
