if you have to replace the caliper,, do yourself a favor and change your brake fluid too. Temps high enough to wreck a caliper are high enough to boil the fluid. Once you do that, change it. ATE super blue racing fluid is killer stuff and only 10-16 bucks a quart. It's a distinct blue color so it's easy to know when you've got all the old stuff out of each line.

at my store we get guys in all the time with rotors way worse than that, and they get all pissed when i tell them we wont turn them. They always say, " i dont care about the min. specs, turn em anyways." and i say "I'm going to wreck two $25 lathe bits on a lost cause if you dont care so much either put 'em back on your car or buy new ones". O btw, dont buy the cheap rotors from china, they suck ***** and are almost never true. pay the extra money for the better rotors, our's are raybestos they come with a 5 yr warranty against warpage and are made with native steel, USA or Canada.
