Larry, I was wondering if you had your rotors machine, as you know the thick and thin areas will cause rotors to warp, and machining old rotors where the metal of the rotors have hard and soft spots from usage, will eventually cause rotors to warp. Brake pads dragging as you described, would heat up the rotors, and not knowing the brake system is over heating. Thus not preventing a rapid cool down of the brake system (rapid cooling of rotors causes warping) could warp your rotors. Good theory, enjoy your drive, timreid
