Need Help

I need some help I have to find out what the spec's are on a f-150 for the front brake rotor's. I just need to know the minimum wear amount or even a link on where to find this? I looked on yahoo and found nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It should be stamped/cast on the rotor somewhere (usually in the hub area).

does that say the maximum amount of wear or the minimum for turning the rotor?

In my opinion, it is the same thing.

But since this question is for a test, then I don't know.

The only place where I know that it "should" list the actual minimum thickness (i.e. maximum wear) would be the specifications section of the OEM manual.

But that is just a guess.
