Minimum Rotor Thickness
OK, my Ram was built in March 04. The factory service manual lists the minimum thickness for the rear brake rotors at 1.117 inch. That can't be right because mine measure 0.863 inch, and there is still plenty of brake pad left. I special ordered the truck from the factory and the brakes have never been worked on. I used a calibrated micrometer, so I know my measurement is correct. The front rotors fit the spec limit listed in the manual for those, so only the rear brake rotors are a puzzle. I'm wondering if they made a running change during the model year and went to a thinner rotor.
I know there must be several of you out there that have the 05 Ram service manual. What does the manual list for the minimum rotor thickness for the rear brake rotors of a 1500 series (LD) 2005 Ram?
