Front Rotors

Hi folks, I have a question about front brake rotors for my 00 Merc...My rotors are due for a changing so I ordered new ones. Just got them today, and WOW, these things seem HUGE to me. Here is a link to the ones I bought. 1998 2002 Crown Victoria Grand Marquis Towncar Front Brake Rotors 54060 2pcs | eBay I don't have my car here to compare them, so I was wondering if anyone has the correct specs on the OE replacements. I've had full size trucks with smaller rotors than these, so I just want to make sure they are going to fit my Merc. before I go tearing it apart. Also, shouldn't there be a part number stamped somewhere on the new rotors? I cannot seem to find a number anywhere.

Re: Front Rotors

Yeah, I just checked auto zones's specs too and they seem to check out. Just seems like they're awfully big with a 12.5" diameter. Thanks R.S.

Re: Front Rotors

Don't be surprised if you have to have them turned right off the bat. Many rotors sold these days are warped straight out of the box. I don't know for sure why. Some say its how they are stored some say made in China.
