Price check: getting rotors turned on the car

Does $170 sound right for getting the 2 front rotors turned with an on-car brake lathe? Another place quoted $250, but I forgot to specify that it was just for the front two rotors. Should the brake pads be replaced when the rotors are turned?

$170? You can get brand new rotors for 1/4 to 1/2 that price.

Yes the pads should be replaced, and for that price you should just buy new rotors. I pay 70 CAN or so to have rotors turned off the car.

The rotors were replaced, the shuddering/pulsating came back with the new ones. From what I've seen it seems to be a problem with Ford Contours.

Anything over 12$ a rotor is too much for turning discs. I use to be able to get them for 6$ a corner. This of course assumes you remove them from the car and bring them to the lathe operator.

What brand rotor, what brand pads? How are your wheel bearings?

Brembo rotors. Don't know what brand pads. I'm not sure about the wheel bearings, either. Keep in mind the quote is for getting them turned while they're on the car, not with a bench lathe.

Did you grease the caliper slides?

That seems silly. I can see it being expensive as in my mind it'd be more of a bother to do them this way as opposed to just removing them and using a traditional lathe.

What seems silly? Getting them turned on the car instead of off the car? I'd love to be able to get them turned the traditional way, but I don't think that would fix the problem. After replacing the rotors, the pulsations come back in a few weeks. My suspicion is lateral runout, and getting the rotors turned while they're on the car is supposed to fix that.

more likely the problem is that you've overheated your rotors and the metal will continue to ripple after you get them changed - I don't remember which site talks about it but once you get break shimmy and turning the rotors fixes it for a little while and it comes back you've got smoked rotors, just replace them.

and yes, I've never had rotors turned on the car but 170/250 seems very high, thats what a brake job should cost with replacing the pads and turning the rotors on/off the car
