Question about 1998 Ford Taurus
Over torqued wheels[when bolted on rotors]will do this -very important to observe wheel lug nut torque specs.

My son has a 1997 SHO with the same issue. The VERY easy fix is to get drilled rotors for the front. Simply put, the stock rotor (same on many Taurus's of this series) is finicky if you don't keep the tires perfectly inflated and/or watch how you break, temperature variations, etc. Since putting the drilled rotors in (Pep Boys under $90 each), there have been zero problems.

Was the fluid pressure checked in the system?Find out.That could be a bad master cylinder,regulator,colapsed lines,bad calipers,brackets,suspension ect.Was the car ever in an accident?It sounds more hydraulic but it rough from here.Have a specialist check it out.It sounds like your overdoing something pretty easy

- Simply put, dealers are not always the most honest. Warped rotors is a very serious event. They warped from heat and a fair amount of it at that. The issues causing this should have been immediately addressed.
- Lathing them down is a ridiculous concept in this case. They should have sent those rotors off for a quality inspection and the issue fixed as well as your rotors replaced. Perhaps at a cost but they were grossly negligent putting lives at risk. I would consider filing a complaint and never use them again.
