While trying to change my pads i noticed my rotors seem loose, also i cant get the brakes to stop grinding, squealing after reassembly.

Shane, rotors may seem loose until wheel is on car and torqued to specification, I recommend you take car in for your brakes to be inspected, estimate and repaired at a good shop. Arrange your appointment time so you can be there and watch how it is done and learn from it. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Steering wheel shakes at high speed when brakes are applied

This is caused by the front disk brake rotors being warped from heat and running out of true, the wobble of the warped rotors causes the wheel to shake when you apply the brakes, it is worse the higher the speed you apply them at. Have the front rotors machined flat again or just replace them.

The dealership service dept. told me I needed new brake rotors+.

I checked autozone site, front rotors 1.020 thousandths rear .300. Yes, I agree, I wouldn't want them near my car. Of course, you're stuck because of trans warranty etc. An extra hour labor for a seized nut is ridiculous. These are so called 'professional' mechanics. This could take extra time, but 5 minutes, not 1 hour. If the fix goes extra easy, does the dealership drop the price? Of course not. At least not yours anyway! If u just replaced the brake pads, why do they say u need a brake job? I always have my rotors turned, but many people don't if they look good, and haven't gone metal to metal from former brake job. U need to go to micrometer reading at thinest wear point of rotor. If your brakes were pulsating, pulling, etc, the dealership could make a big deal about the rotors, but putting pads on rotors that are worn to approx. limit , but in good shape as far as wear and grooving, is not an issue here. I think u should try and find another dealer, or private garage for the future (good luck). When a tie rod is replaced, the # of turns tio remove it (from threaded sleeve) should be counted, and new one installed same # of turns to get to as close as possible to former alignment specs. It is a good idea to have alignment done again, as if it was a bit off before, it will be corrected to specs, so I do agree w/ the alignment of the car. Let me know how u make out.
