OK, here is the deal: I am putting new wheel bearings in the rotors for my '68 Camaro. Got everything apart, popped out the old races, cleaned out the grease. One of the outer races was cracked (and spread open about 1/16") before I tried to remove it. When I put the new race in the rotor the cracked one came from, I noticed the race had lots of freeplay in the hub. Obviously this is why the previous race cracked (due to excessive clearance).

My question is do I replace this rotor with a junkyard jewel or do I go for it and buy two new one piece rotors? I have the funds to get the new ones, but the other rotor is in very good shape (original 2 piece setup) and I hate to waste good parts (sell it on e-bay?). If I buy new parts, whom do you recommend for quality and value?

If you want to upgrade a bit, check out the Baer Eradispeed setup. Curved vane rotor on an aluminum hub. Uses your old caliper and brackets.

Check my web page for First Gen Camaro suspension info:

I've got a 2 piece rotor that is beyond min. thickness, but has a good hub.You can seperate it..Or, if you do decide to go with aftermarket rotors, let me know if you're interested in selling the ones you have.
