Anyone know of a good after market source for brake pads and part numbers? Planning on a tire rotation swap of fronts to curb side dual soon. Got 32k and outer pads look pretty thin. Good time to change pads.

The caliper assembly is made by Bosch and as such I'm not so sure that you'll find or see a 3rd party replacement pad. You can certainly order them from a Workhorse svc. ctr. parts counter but I don't know IF (or most likely) you will be paying retail for the parts.

Regardless you just can't throw in a new set of pads on top of scored rotors. You would have to cut your rotors and I'm not so sure that's something you want to do. Perhaps the pads need to wear down more before replacement.

On a great deal of automobile rotors they won't cut them so they have to be replaced. Re. a WCC rotor I don't have that answer yet but I can check with my resources to see if they can be resurfaced and new pads installed. 2nd item; You have to find a shop that can cut large rotors.

I saw a rotor sitting by itself and it's a huge piece of steel. I know one thing, I wouldn't wanna buy a set of them puppies.

PS: I have 33K miles on my rig!

Actually, anymore many shops will just replace the rotors as they have become relatively inexpensive. If you have had any issues with warpage, or feeling of pulsating in the brake pedal, then turning the rotors will only buy you a short reprieve before it happens again. You can upgrade your rotors and pads at the same time and probably improve the longevity of your brakes. Your stock pads are probably okay, as 32k is not really alot of miles for a medium duty chassis. like Driver suggested, have someone that knows these brakes inspect them and maybe save you some money.

The outer pads are about 1/8" on rears and slghtly thicker on the fronts. The inner pads are over a 1/4" thick and still have some cross grove showing, maybe about 1/16". I assume this grove is for cooling or vibration reduction. Outside of all this, the brakes work fine. I use transmission braking as much as possible and keep 5 or 6 seconds away from front traffic. I've got one WH service center quote for $700 for complete 4 wheel brake job including rotor turning and wheel bearing service. Does this sound out of line? Is 32k an unusually low mileage for pad wear? I'm running below but close to GVAW and CGVW rating and I have a working toad brake system.

Now I'm a wonderin exactly what do they mean, wheel bearing service. ????

"The condition of the fluid must also be inspected during tire rotation or once if per year, if fluid is contaminated (i.e. dirt and water in the oil) the fluid must be changed and inner hub assembly cleaned" P24 06 WGMHCG.

Remember the oil level in the front hubs and condition of the fluid can simply be checked by looking at the fluid level in the sight glass.

Therefore ... IF the fluid is not contaminated then it doesn't need any service. The rear bearings will also require no service.

In the Maintenance Schedule, Schedule "A" calls for "Front wheel bearing adjustment and lubrication"

Schedule A is defined as: "During tire rotation or once per year"

Bottom line is if they are going to look at your oil and check for play in the bearings (very bad condition), I would find out exactly how much they are going to charge you for "that" particular service item.

If it's a courtesy examination then I would say that's great, they should do that since the wheel liners are removed and the tires are off the vehicle.
