    Some more heat cycles and that rotor shield started rubbing again at higher speeds, I guess when the wind pushed on it.

    We got hail big enough that I was worried about broken car windows this morning. Pretty weird. I didn't see any damage, though. Not to the cars. But the shingles are pretty rough.

    The last couple days I've been getting a scraping/ringing sound from the driver's side. It would come and go, but it would always be gone during braking.

    I think the reason they last is they have seen so few miles, but I'm biased against them. My dad had a Regal that required significant service at the dealer 39...

    Thanks everyone. I'll be able to make my own as well if I end up needing them.
