Newbie Disco Brake Question

I am a complete Newbie when it comes to working on our Disco (spend my time working on the Jeeps). Where is the best (read least expensive) place to get the disk brake pads? I need to do a brake job on the 98 disco.

Cheapo pads they wear your rotors out before themselves.
Fit some decent pads from Ferodo/brembo
easy to change with a few tools.

many times you can scare up a set of Mintex pads off eBay - fwiw. failing that, i generally use discountrovers.com, british pacific, or NAPA i am running some rotors I obtained from NAPA with mintex pads and they've been great together.

cheers,

isaac

Turning rotors

I have my Jeep rotors turned at Napa. Are most places in the USA set up to turn Rover rotors?

I'm pretty sure you will find that the shop manual says to replace rotors and not to turn them.

Can they be turned? What's the problem with turning them?
