EBC Rotor part number

Need to replace the clanging cowbell with an EBC rotor. The mechanic at the shop said that the EBC was a non floating rotor. Is that correct? what is the part number? I have not read any problems from the EBC and it sure is less expensive.

Two things: "The mechanic" doesn't know what he's talking about and do a search.
Many of us here have had fitment issues with the EBC. I contacted EBC about the issues we are having and so far (3+ months) no response. I will never do business with EBC ever again.

EBC's web site has a PDF file of their application catalog

http://www.ebcbrakes.com/Assets/2007usamc.pdf

See page 31, near the bottom - it shows:
Code:
                                                            FRONT                     |        REAR
                                                     pads  HH-pads  L rotor  R rotor  | pads  HH-pads rotor

* symbol after part# = 2 pieces reqd.
And your mechanic is obviously 'not yet informed' on this rotor. It most certainly is a floating design.

FWIW - the words on fitment issues started showing up good bit after I installed mine. I've no issues. Maybe they changed it since I got mine?

EZ, I assume you tried talking to EBC after you worked with the outfit that sold you your rotor (retailer) was unable to get things right, eh?

Retailer referred me to EBC. "Worked with" - I did all the leg work for them and still no response. Have you removed and checked your wheel?

I am also having issues with the rotor I purchased. Having to use two spacers just to get the wheel to turn properly is not what should be happening.

I have considered trying to go back and see if I can do something with the OEM rotor so see if I can stop the clang - like taking it to a welding shop and see if it can be tacked in some way to keep it quiet. I do not like the idea of using silicone. Anyone tried fixing the OEM rotor?

I have approx. 15k no clanking or squeaking miles on my EBC rotor and pads. Installed both with no fitment problems. -Chuck-

md 615 is the rotor I used on the rear, no problems at all, lucky I guess. I even got another spacer just in case I would need it but everything fit perfectly.

I have one that they sent me after I warrantied the first too for improper milling on the rotor itself. The one I have currently has issues with the hub hitting the rim. I do not have the extra spacer to test if the rotor will work correctly. If you want to consider buying mine which has issues, send me a PM. I won't hold my breath though. Down with EBC
