      Subaru Forester Brake Rotor

      Sporty, spacious and easy to handle, your Subaru Forester has a reputation for remaining light on its feet no matter what the weather. Make sure your SUV stays safe and sure-footed by updating its worn out rotors with new, premium-quality Subaru Forester brake rotors from AutoZone.

      When you purchase a performance Pickup brake rotor from AutoZone, you get a renewed confidence in your braking system. High carbon content provides better thermal capacity to withstand the extreme heat from braking friction. Hot gases are vented away from the brake pads so they're less likely to leave deposits on the rotors, reducing the potential for vibration. If you want to do the installation job yourself, rely on our handy Loan-a-Tool program whenever you visit your local store. Choose from our wide variety of brake rotors for Toyota Pickup and enjoy free battery charging and engine diagnostic testing when you shop.

      Exact Fit, Precise Tolerances, Perfect Operation

      First, the packaging is stout, and needs to be for heavy cast rotors. So the product arrived in perfect condition. The rotor is wrapped in a plastic bag, and coated with anticorrosion compound which, whilst it provides protection, isn't oily and slippery, which makes it easy to handle safely. Unwrapping the rotor you can immediately see the quality. The surface finish is ground, not turned, so it's very smooth, and very parallel from one side to the other (I checked with a Vernier Caliper). The holes for the wheel studs were also very accurately drilled, being no more than a couple of thousandths of an inch different, both in location and size. The reason we changed the front rotors on the 2009 Subaru Forester X Eddie Bauer was not because they were worn out, but because the aftermarket rotors on the car had warped badly. We bought the car knowing this, and the next day we purchased the Duralast rotors (Yes, they were in stock at a local store!). This was "Job One" in preparing the car for my daughter to make her first solo long drive from Dallas to Denver for college. Her safety being paramount, and the weather forecast calling for snow and stormy conditions! So I needed a product I could be confident in, and I've had good luck with Duralast products (I suspect it isn't luck! :-). Upon removing the other aftermarket rotors, I examined them to see if I could determine the failure mode that caused the warping, and it quickly became apparent! First, the rotors didn't come off easily, and the right side rotor had to be heated around the hub area and beaten off!!! Not because of rust, but because the tolerance on the bore of the hole for the hub centered disc was undersized! I measured it, and it was almost the same size as the bore itself! Amazing! They must have had to use a mallet to install them! And herein lies the reason for their failure. As the brakes rotors heat up during braking, the rotors expand, and if sufficient clearance isn't given around the hub, the rotor has nowhere to expand to. And if the rotor can't expand, that means it will warp due to the differential expansion as the metal tries to find somewhere to go. It also didn't help that the old rotors were not consistent in thickness, although that could be caused by the warping of the rotor. Imagine my happiness that when I offered up the Duralast rotors to the car, and they slid right on! Perfectly centered, in both the hub bore and the stud holes, exactly like they should! There were cheaper options available, but we are talking about my daughter here, so no, that wasn't an option. I needed safe, functional, reasonably priced (you don't need slotted and cross drilled rotors on a Subaru Forester! LOL And knowing Duralast products, I trusted them for my own child... Enough said. After fitting the rotors, using brake clean to remove the anticorrosion coating (an important step), we cleaned and inspected the calipers, and installed the Duralast Elite Copper-Free Ceramic Brake Pads. I chose these because ceramic pads are quieter, and produce less dust than conventional pads, and they are less harsh on the brake rotors (I'd rather replace pads than discs!). I really like that the Duralast pads came with perfectly fitting hardware, and some moly lube for the sliding points. Again, just like the rotors, fit and finish were perfect. No excessive slop in the friction areas, so there won't be any noise or squealing from the pads. Again, yes there are cheaper pads... But why would you? Brakes are the single most important, and frequently used safety component on a car, not to mention no annoying squealing and far less dust to clean off your wheels. If you think about the few bucks difference, and how much less time you'll spend cleaning wheels, it's worth it for that alone! Anyway, sorry the review is a little long, but I felt the detail was important to know. And by the way, my 18 year old daughter did the whole brake job, front and rear (except when I got the torch out to heat the old rotors!), and that was also a first for her; I just supervised. So yes, you can easily tackle your own brake job, and save a bunch of money! Something a poor student at college, paying her own way (and for her own car parts and maintenance!) really needs! Bottom line... The new Duralast rotors fit exactly, had precise tolerances, worked GREAT with the matched Duralast pads, and provided perfectly balanced, quiet, powerful, less dusty, and safe braking. I'd buy them again, and recommend them to anyone. And that's coming from a product designer and engineer; but more importantly, from a Dad!

      I hit the breaks hard a couple days ago and it was raining was for sure they were going to warp but to my surprise they didn't. Best Rotors Ever
