Thanks. Give me your thoughts on this:

-- I replaced the pads and rotors about 25k ago
-- Smooth until about 5k ago
-- Pads are fine and thick
-- Left rotor has obvious high spot- you can see lines across one side of the rotor (the direction of the slice in a slice of pie) in a section about 1-2 inches wide.

-- When I replaced, I did everything you just mention -- EXCEPT cleaning the rotors with brake cleaner. I removed the plastic coating and wiped them, but who is to say that I didn't get anything on them.

My question is: Would a grease spot have the effect you describe after 20k, or wouldn't that show up much sooner?
