      I've heard you have to, but I don't see to why it would matter

      you should, but as long as you replace pads and rotor, I dont see how it could be much of a problem

      Why wouldn't you?
      Yes, I'm back in Norway. No I don't have time to go to the junkyard and find red 20th seatbelts or other rare **** and send it across the Atlantic ocean to you.

      i'd do both, just doesn't make sense to do just one side. if you're too poor, take the bus. it'll save you money for gas and maintenance. problem motherf&ckin' solved.

      you can get some cheap rotors at various online resellers. you can replace just one if needed but it'll be more complicated to make sure that your brakes are wearing evenly in the future.
