It's probably a good idea to remove moisture, contaminants or air Although I believe for this install the brakes weren't bled. Good way to measure if your brakes need bleeding is pedal feel. If it feels really soft you need to bleed your brakes.
I think those rotors are facing the wrong way. If I recall from when i had my mazda3 and put on those type of rotors, the slots and holes should flow the opposite direction of fwd wheel spin.... if that makes sense.
I guess I just need a bigger hammer lol. I took the 2 screws out but the rotor still wouldn't budge. I thought there must be more bolts that needed to be removed. The reason I am taking the rotor off is because my hand brake is sticking on the drivers side. So that probably part of the reason my rotor is hard coming off.
its not so much the direction of the slots but the internal vanes of the rotor, if they are just normal vanes (straight vanes) then u can put the slots whatever way u fancy. however if they are direction vanes then u must install them in the proper rotational direction otherwise u can hinder their cooling ability making them less efficient then their straight veined counterparts. so, if the vanes on the rotors where straight then they are installed correctly and its simply preference for the direction of the slots.
So in the last 2 weeks I have purchased and installed Feal coilovers on my 2011 3.8 Track. I bought these used from a guy in my area who had them on his BK2, and only used them for less then 10k miles, and I got them for 1/3 of original cost. Between cost, the 30 click dampening adjustment...
