at my 110,000 mile service i still had ~75% of my factory material left. both front and rear. the front rotors dont even have a lip on them. i am a little worried about how my clutch and flywheel look, but there is nothing to raise any concern over them yet. no noise or smell.

to check the rear drums you have to undo the nut that holds the bearing in place. youll want a torque wrench to get that secured when you are done. my garage didnt charge me anything to check them for me. why for put the bearing in the drum is beyond me. probably just to make it more difficult for us to do a brake swap.
