It is very likely that your front brake rotors (or discs) are warped. You can have a competent
machine shop resurface the rotors on a lathe (as long as they are still thick enough after the machining process to meet minimum thickness standards for safety) or you can replace the warped rotors with new ones. In both cases, I would recommend also replacing the brake pads too. Hope this helps.

Wnen ever i apply brakes at a stop sign it vibrate ot when i turn left it vibrates


If it tries pull the steering wheel back and forth, it is brake rotors. If it just vibrates threw the body and steering, it is the right side wheel bearing.

Front end vibration


It sounds like your brake rotors need to be replaced, they could be warped from overheating. This could be caused by applying the brakes too much while going downhill.

Can you feel the vibration through the steering wheel if so have your front discs machined & the front pads replaced. Or are you feeling the vibration through the pedal? if so it may be the rear but start with the front.

Had bad vibration in front end of car when brakes applied,installed new rotors and pads,still have slight vibration when brakes applied.


do u feel the vibration in the steering wheel or in the seat,i bet the most vibration was coming out of the front brakes and a little out of the rear brakes,u might want to change the rear brakes if the vibration is still annoying,also were the front wheels torqued to spec when installed?? if not u might end up with warped front brakes again,hope this helped
