Need to change front rotors

How do the berrings go in to the actual rotor? are the smaller ones that are in the front casing installed with the point going toward the rotor or pointing outward toward the wheel?

My 2003 bmw x5 steering wheel vibrates for a couple seconds when I am slowing down and then goes away, do I need new routers?

Hi there, provided your tyres have been fitted correctly, like others have said there are a few reasons why you can experience what we call a shudder through the steering under braking and what normally feels worse when braking from 100kph/60mph rather then from 50kph/30mph, if you do have warped front discs/rotors they will need to be checked but a common cause for steering shudder also along side warped brake discs are the control arm bushes which is item #7 in the pic supplied and they fit into item #6, these can be seen quite easily with the front of the vehicle jacked up it is the lower control arm seen going from the bottom of the front wheel suspension assembly to forward of the front wheel to cross member/ sub frame, with the vehicle jacked you can see the rubber inside the bush itself to see whether it's cracked, be sure that when they are being replaced as is with all suspension bushes the vehicle must be rested back on its wheels before tightening the bolt item #8 as this is the normal working position of the bush and not in the jacked up position.

After changing rotors and breaks, steering shakes worse

If they don't look the same Than they are not the same. Thre are two different rotors for the fronts for this car. One is for vehicles with 15" wheels and the other is for the performance package pwhich would have 16 & 17 inch wheels. Take the new rotors back along with the old ones and they should be able to figureout what you need. It is possible for new rotors to be out of round and require turning with a brake lathe in order to make them true. More times than not it is not necessary but it can happen. Just in case the right rotors are installed and you still get a vibration, Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

My 2004 LeSabre shakes bad when I brake at around 50 mph. I changed the front brake pads. How difficult is it to change the front rotors?

Actually, changing the front rotors is not that difficult and they are relatively in-expensive. Anytime you change the pads on the front of your vehicle i would recommend having the rotors resurfaced or replaced. Especially if you are getting a brake pedal pulse when applying the brakes. Here is a step by step guide that will help you in removing your Front rotors.

How do i change the brakes and rotors on my 2004

When you say fit properly I assume you mean it's not going back together. Make sure you have the bearings and races installed correctly on the back side and that you are installing the correct rotor on the correct side with the correct bearings. The front and rear bearings look the same but they aren't and if you try putting that rotor on with the front side bearing installed in the rear of the rotor it will never go back together.

make sure the wheel hub surfaces are clean and free of rust both in front of and behind the rotors. also check that your rear brake adjusters are working correctly. also check wheel berring, balljoint and tierod ends for play. theres should be no play and berring should spin free of noise.

What would cause a roar in the front end when the brakes are applied?

The brake pads have worn out and now the metal backing plate of the pad is pressing on the the brake rotor. You will need to have these brakes repaired soon! When the pads wear down to this point, they will have reduced effectiveness at the very least. The pads can actually fall right out of their holders and braking would be lost. Check my name's icon picture, this was the case. You will need to have both rotors replaced and a new set of brake pads installed.
