Depends if it has 30,000 or 200,000 miles. Generally, you'll wants to wire brush any areas that the pads touch and lubricate thoses areas with high temperature caliper grease. Be sure the slide pins are clean and well lubed also or replace them.

How do you change the front rotors on your 2001 ZX3?

First, remove the wheel. Then disassemble the brake calipers - two hex or star bolts located on the back which will require you to first remove the caps. Once the bolts are removed, the whole assembly should be able to slide of the rotors. Make sure you support the calipers somehow, do not just let them dangle from the connecting lines (They're fragile and can be easily be torn or pulled) Once the calipers are out of the way, the rotors are able to slide out. Remember to replace your pads if you're replacing the rotors, and bleed the brakes! I had a harder time bleeding the brakes after I did this than I did replacing the rotors.
