Calipers are cheap
It's more than likely gonna need all new pads, rotors and calipers on at least the front, if not all four corners. I put at least 75k on this thing every year and I drive my daughter around in it all the time so I don't want to cheap out on something like brakes.

Long story short: I've got a ruger charger w/ an archangle kit I got from this guy for $325. Good feller to deal with. He offered me this RIA 1911 for trade back on that Ruger charger. Do I take the deal? I'm not into 1911's at all. But I do need to sell the charger or sell the 1911

You sure it's not a wheel bearing? Never heard of discs just locking up but I'm no mechanic.

Don't ask me how I know about cheaping out on brakes. Had front rotors on Pilot turned and they promptly warped in no time.

Put some fancy rotors and pads on it and she'll almost do a stoppie...

RIA package realistically worth about $400

This is the 2nd time that my front driver side rotor has locked up on me. The first time they were able to free it up and greased it up real well. It just happened again so I'm gonna just have them replace it. I just had my buddy who is a mechanic rebuild the whole front end (suspension, CV axles, bearings, etc.) on that thing about 6 months ago so I know it's not the wheel bearing. I wish I could wait for him to get to it but I need my car today and I'm 70 miles from home.

Rotors warping are a huge problem on the bigger Honda's (Pilot, Ridgeline, Odyssey) on the front end. My sister's Odyssey had the same issue repeatedly. She went through three sets of rotors in less than 100k miles. We ended up putting drilled and slotted rotors and some nice ceramic pads on it and it solved that issue. Before she traded in that Odyssey and got her new one we took the drilled and slotted rotors off of the old one and put the factory ones back on and then transferred the drilled and slotted ones onto her new one.

Factory Honda Pilot rotors are meant to be replaced, not turned per the service manual. I had mine turned and was back in less than 30 days for new rotors. Yep, they warp after tuning.
Now I don’t even bother with turning. I just replace them. Same for my fords.
The days of turning are long gone I’m afraid.
