This is why people don't come into STA. At least he had a legit question to ask and not some kid showing off his base model lancer or some ****.

Yes they do. Rotors are pressed into the wheel bearings. Brake jobs are much more money. Prepare to spend about double that of a regular brake job if you are getting rotors replaced.

I strongly suggest bringing your car somewhere else for the repair if your mechanic can't look at modern brakes and tell if they are trapped rotors or not.

I have a 2005 Colorado and had to do rotors on it last summer. They are a pain in the ***. Compared to the old style ones. The entire hub/ wheel bearing/ abs assembly has to off of the steering knuckle to get to the rotor bolts.
