 I had to replace both front rotors because they rusted to the point of compressing. i understand 1989 to 1991 were recalled for this same problem. what i don't understand is why my 92 wasn't recalled if it has the same problem. my braking was so poor that i went ahead and spent almost $300.00 and replaced rotors after i complained to chrysler and they said they whould not pay for it. i have old rotors if someone is interested in looking at them. thankyou ken
