New brake job needed...

Ok i did a brake job about 3 years ago. My front drivers side rotor is a lil warped. Instead of getting them turned, im just going to replace rotors and pads over christmas break. Now last time my uncle and I ran into a problem. It seems that some genius at DCX decided to put 15" tire size rotors on the car that has 16" rims.....what a tool. well every place we went to sold us the 16"ers. We know for this time around to buy the 15". I was thinking of getting the IRotors this time around. Do they know of this mess up on the 99' model year?

Me confused. So, did your car come from the factory with the smaller rotor, or did the dealership put the smaller rotors on during a previous brake job (which would be interesting)?

Really, what does it matter if iRotors know about it? As long as you know about it, you can order the correct parts.

Im looking at replacing my rotors. From what Ive read from searching the forum some folks seem quite confident that cars that came with 16" wheels take the bigger rotor. I have a feeling that I am running the smaller rotor. I replaced one last year due to sticky sliders and thats the first time I was asked about size...SO Im not real sure why the parts place isnt as confident that the 16" wheel takes the bigger rotor. I wonder if thats why I have had so much issues with warpage. I have had the car 3 1/2 yrs. The brakes were done when it was certified. Then I did them around this time last year (wasnt asked about size) . In the fall I had to replace one(sticky slider). Now I just got some tires installed at walmart..and they are warped again.

old thread but good questions,, looking at my wagner manual,, its the same rotor,, unlesst its a police option,, also,, when doing your rotors,, after your done and putting your wheels back on,, DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT, just grab the old 1/2 impact gun and go to town tighting them down,, use a good TORQUE wrench,, tighten the lug nuts in a star pattern,, if my feble mind serves me well the lug nuts on all intrepids ,, is 100 ft pounds
belive me you will have a lot less warpage

I have part numbers directly from DCX. I'll take a look at it tomorrow and I should be able to back track it.

As for torque spec, I've seen 100 and 110. I use 100.

For the 1999 Dodge Intrepid (front axle), Chrysler says that all models use the same rotor (4779020AB). That OE number crosses over to our 145197, which is the 282mm rotor.

Im still telling all of you, my car is a mutt.....my uncle is an ASE cert. mechanic, and we did the brake job. Its about time to do it again, and im curious to take it some place else just to get an est. on the cost and watch them scratch their heads when the 16" rotor does not fit in the caliper.

Hmmm....

Looking at www.advanceautoparts.com, for a 99 ES 3.2, they list Bendix 145197, Front 15" Wheels and 145198 Front 16" w/ ABS. RockAuto shows something similar w/ different brands......

I seem to recall the issue is really SE -vs- ES, build on SE assumed 15" steelies w/ hubcaps, and everything else gets the 'bigger' rotor. Guess I'll have to measure whats there the next time I've got the car up

And we've been selling them that way without any issues (at least none that I know of). Thats' why I found it strange when I looked at the recent catalog from Chrysler that they only list one rotor for all braking systems for 1999 Intrepid/Concorde. The 1999 300M lists a different OE number. I don't recall what that crosses over to. I will have to check tomorrow.
