Question about 2002 Chevrolet Impala
I have a 2002 Impala LS I have replaced the rotors and break pads 2 times in the last 6 months because the rotors get out of round. I told my wife shes riding the brakes but Im starting to think the car has something wrong with it. I bought the car used about 8 months. And I feel poping in the steering wheel when you hit a bump in the road. Does anybody have an Ideal whats wrong with this car?
I had the same problem, but after replacing the rotors and brake pads. The shake wasn't as bad, but was still there. I had to replace both front wheel hubs to correct it. When I changed the brakes I noticed the passenger side tire had abnormal wear on the inside tread.

Could be loose tie rod ends, seperated control arm front bushings, or a binding steering intermediate shaft. Any of these will amplify a brake pulastion and make it feel worse then it really is.

Would suggest getting the rotors machined rather than replaced. After the Thickness variation occurs ,then the metal has already taken it's "set" and will stay true longer.
Rotors are cheap now,but go "out of round quickly"
