Some of you may remember, I had a cracked rear brake rotor on my 6x6 a while back, which then broke the hub, and ruined the pads. Well, again on the right side, there is a 1/4" crack all the way through on the disc. I don't know if the hub is cracked again.

Has this happened to anyone else? The rotors are pretty thin, maybe 1/4". Most disc brakes I've seen have a disk that is about 3/4" thick, but with airspace in the middle.

For those of you who don't recall my last post, here are the pictures of the first crack:

Here is the broken hub...notice it is all rusty. The other side wasn't.


Here's the wreckage from last time


This is the hub before I took it off


Thanks

we just got rid of two 2x4 rangers and one 4x4 ranger that were used daily. one had 400 hrs and the other two had 842 and 892. all were one year old. the main problem we had was the brake pads would break in two then junk the caliper. even at low hrs. we bought two honda foremans to replace the rangers on the job, and got two rangers that we'll use on a limited basis. i think they have a real problem with their brake system. we have purchased 8 rangers in the last three years and we like the machine but they just became to expensive to run daily. we can go back to the hondas now as we dont have to haul that much anymore. ranger cost per hr ( $5.00) honda ( $1.65)
