Brake concerns

I've got a 94' ED Falcon Classic...I'm hearing a noise on the outside of the car coming from the front wheel. It's like a rotary sort of noise...like warping.
The mechanic says that it's the disc moving and he'll machine it back or something? What does he mean? any other suggestions...
He's going to replace the bearing too..cause it's also stuffed.,

Thanks people.

Re: Brake concerns

Sounds about right to me, bearing is forked.

Re: Brake concerns

What he most likely means is that the wheel bearings os worn which will create a rumbling type of noise, in excessive cases it can cause the front rotor assembly to move slightly in and out which can not only cause pad knock back, but create thin spots on the rotor, which will need to be machined flat again. Another reason for the rotors to warp is excessive heat ( riding the brakes etc ) and overtightening wheel nuts

Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted

Re: Brake concerns

if the rumble is constant, but one rumble after the other, it could be the slides are dry.
