    Good morning all,

    So this morning I get a text at work that my wife decided to move my boxes of brand new EBC rotors. She said while she was moving them, that one slid out of the box and hit the (lenoleum) floor. It dented the floor but there was no obvious damage to the rotors.

    Can I still install the rotor or is it screwed? Not sure if they can handle the impact of being dropped from ~4 feet. Just want to make sure that they won't be warped, ect.

    Thanks for the help.

    I would think if a fall that small would mess them up I wouldn't want them on my truck.

    Awesome thanks guys thats good to hear. The logic ya'll have makes sense.

    I also called EBC and they assured me that unless they were gouged or cracked there they are fine.

    Is there a wood sub floor under the linoleum or a concrete pad?

    You can have my old ones, free of charge :)


    It is just linoleum over concrete. The linoleum is pretty thick however.

    I'm willing to bet that everything is fine except for the floor.
    However she should have never texted you this to dwell on all day but instead should have prepared a romantic night for you when you got home and slowly broke the news to you.
    You can still work this to your favor. ; - )
