    I am in the process of replacing front pads but didn’t notice which side inboard or outboard gets the squeal tab. Does it matter? Also what is the min rotor thickness? Both rotors are 32 mm now. Thanks in advance

    Welcome to the site.

    The pad with the tab goes on the inside.

    The rotor tolerances should be stamped on the rotor.

    That would be too easy. Nothing is stamped on the rotors. Thanks, maybe parts store guy can look it up.

    Nothing on the hub? I’m betting it’s there (was), but minimum thickness is 29mm.

    Personally, I just replace rotors with pads every time, maybe I’ll pad slap once if rotors look/mic in spec.

    I bought the truck 2 years ago, don’t have any history on the brakes. Odd with no stamp you are correct. Thanks for the info.
