I, too have to replace pads on my '91 200q20v with UFO's. I am curious to know
if you have the rotors turned when you replace the old pads. From what I've seen
on the "List" and Chris Miller's page, turning them is very specialized and for
this reason, is it safe to assume that it's not necessary? Currently, the brakes
work great, no signs of warping, no shimmy, etc. The pads are just getting low.
I have saved a lot if info. from the lists on UFO's but never really found this
question answered.
