    So a friend of mine noticed something strange, sort of annoying that I didn't notice and even more annoying that I didn't know the answer...

    Are the rotors directional? (I only know of the Charger) it seems on mine I have "2 left" or "2 right" rotors. If you see from the pictures the slots in the rotors on the drivers side tail backwards while the rotors on the passenger side flow forwards. Same goes for the rear. Did they run out of a side? Is anyone else out there that has rotors like this? Should I be concerned? I have another couple of issues with paint that I'm trying to work out with FCA so I will leave that until later I just saw this and thought of safety.

    same part number for left and right rotors. just looks funny but does not affect braking performance. all SRT8s since 2006 have used similar design.

    X2 on what Fnky said. Typically you do have directional rotors on big brake kits in the aftermarket world, however dodge has always used one rotor design in the brembo systems which is not directional.

    I would take a guess at $1250 a pair. I could be out but I paid £1000 trade price for a pair of 380mm Brembo rotors for my F150 Lightning. They lasted over 100,000 miles so I cannot complain.

    You've got a Lightning too? You my friend are addicted. It might be cheaper just to move to this side of the pond.:D

    If you swap them from one side to the other you will see they are actually the same, lol.

    haha. Been my daily driver for 13 years. Just picking up my fourth this weekend. A silver truck with 40,000 miles. But had it repainted black. Owned two metallic greys, one black and one silver now black. My wife would move to the US in a heart beat. But 28 years in business through good and bad. At my age I don't have the strength to even contemplate starting over. Maybe in the next life.
