I would just get a new set of rotors and pads and check the caliper pistons prior to going out to rebed everything.
I figured I would replace both pads and rotors. I don't want to take a chance that I would ruin the rotors with the old pads and this gives me an excuse to tell my wife I need to upgrade the rotors with slotted. The strange thing is that when I pulled the calipers apart they came off so easily. Could a clog in the brake line or a malfunction in the traction controls do this?
