Brakes - severe scoring on *one* rotor...
I've been investigating complaints from my son about some slight "pulsing" in the brakes in our 08 Ranger, which made me suspect the rotors. While I drove the truck myself and couldn't quite sense the "pulsing" to be as severe as my son suggested, a visual inspection of the rotors indicated the driver-side rotor to be rather significantly scored - easily sensed with the "back of the fingernail" trick. Not just a single score, but several "ridges," almost as if a prior pad replacement went too long and the brads in the backing material came in contact with the rotor surface. In contrast, the passenger side rotor was smooth.
Given the one rotor appears to me to be toast, and we don't have any other service history for the vehicle (used/new-to-us), I think I'm just going to go ahead and replace the pads, rotors, and bearings across the front.
Does the obviously dissimilar rotor wear suggest anything else worth considering other than the pad going too far? And does the path of replacement as I described seem reasonable? Truck has 73K miles on it, and 3K of those are ours.
