I've read the FAQs, and a huge thanks for all the stickies on brakes...super helpful!!! I have a couple kinda stupid questions: My 2004 WRX wagon recently started wobbling on the front passenger wheel while braking, so I wanted to get the Hawk 9012 to scrape deposits off the rotor on that side. Do I need to do both front brakes with the Hawks if only one side is vibrating? Since those Hawk pads are kinda pricey, why wouldn't I just buy plain brembro rotors for $50 and put my old pads back on? Seems like maybe the Hawks would be worthwhile if you were trying to save some expensive rotors, but I'm not....

Thanks again for all the helpful posts. The dealer wanted $677 for front rotors/pads, and all the posts here have inspired me to try my first brakejob (watch out!) .

Can measurement of rotor thickness be added to the FAQ?
