Minimum front and rear rotor thickness

I have a 93 ford taurus 3.8L V6 automatic GL. I am going to measure the thickness of my front and rear brake rotors with a micrometer. Does anybdy know thw minimum thickness of my car’s front and rear rotors?

how many miles are you into this 93? if it is under 100K, you should be fine.

Usually the minimum thickness is stamped on the disc somewhere.

Take them to any major auto parts store. They will have the spec book there, as well as a rotor micrometer. Some of them even have a lathe to machine them for you.
