I recently put new front brake pads and had rotors turned on the front end of my 2003 tundra sr5,after a month of driving i'm getting the pulsation when braking back which is why i made this repai


HI if you have pulsation after a month you must replace the rotors
they are too thin and the heat is warping them faster then before you
had them turned
note you replace brake pads and rotors

good luck

I have a '03 Monte Carlo SS and I replaced the rotors at 76k miles and the rotors need replaced again at 89k miles. It shouldn't need rotors again so soon should it?


I wouldn't think you'd need them again that soon. Unless you have some calipers sticking and causing the rotors to get hot and warp. Do you have a shimmy when applying the brakes at higher speeds?

Check for bent wheel bearing hub. Beyond that, have a runout test done on the rotors while on the vehicle.

Frt rotors replace 2001 monte carl along with pads steerin wheel shakes while braking why?


You may need to re-machine those rotors as there is most likely excessive run out or warpage present causing the steering wheel to shimmy while braking. There is a limit on how much can be shaved off the rotors as these warp easier the thinner they get. I have seen replacement rotors with problems right out of the package. The only realistic way to check if one or both are wavy is to chalk them up on a lathe and see how much run out is present on the rotors.

2001 Monte Carlo - brakes squeal "whistle"


Actually - I had the same problem and replaced my brakes 4 times in a year. YES 4 TIMES because of the whistling. I switched from metallic to ceramic pads and works like a charm! Ceramic will not allow the noise, plus I have found to have much better control over braking and short distances.

Vibration in brake pedal


The rear shoes and drum are not in even contact when braking, thus resulting into entire vehicle vibration. The most likely cause of misalignment is a warped rear drums. However, it is possible that the drums are ok, but rather the rear wheel bearings are worn or loose, this would likely cause misalignment between shoes and drums
