1993 buick lesabre changed the front rotars and pads and now the cars brake pedal is so hard to push down to get car to stop. Mechanic has checked both the front and back brakes and they are fine. T


I would jack up a front wheel and see if pushing on the pedal with the engine running will stop the wheel from turning.
You need to know if the pressure is reaching the wheels, or if the pads and rotors are too slick to stop the car.
Usually if the pedal is hard, the booster is not working or the brakes are glazed.
Can you stop the car with the parking brake ? That only uses the rear brakes.
You may need a second opinion from a different shop.

My 2004 LeSabre shakes bad when I brake at around 50 mph. I changed the front brake pads. How difficult is it to change the front rotors?


Actually, changing the front rotors is not that difficult and they are relatively in-expensive. Anytime you change the pads on the front of your vehicle i would recommend having the rotors resurfaced or replaced. Especially if you are getting a brake pedal pulse when applying the brakes. Here is a step by step guide that will help you in removing your Front rotors.

Brakes have a pulsing feel when youy apply them


U have warped disk brake rotors, if your car four wheel disk then all four should be machined true again to stop the problem, if u have just front disk brakes then have the front disk rotors machined true again by a brake shop

2000 Buick LeSabre - the rotors were replaced at about 80,000 miles and since that time, rotors only last about 8-10,000 miles before they need turning or have to be replaced. The mechanics don't seem to...


Who else has been driving this car besides you? Most of the rotors that get slight warpage is due to drivers that drive fast and follow close. Excessive braking and making quick stops then holding you foot down heavly on the pedal at stops will warp the rotors. They get red hot and when you press red hot metal it will give.The calipers are pressing the metal every time you stop. Excessive pressure on the pads while foot is off of the pedal may be due to the front brake hoses as the inner core will collapse and will keep pressure on the caliper. I have seen this a lot on gm trucks.

Were the calipers check for not sticking, as well as lubed well when re-installed? If it's original flex hoses at calipers, that's also a consideration.

The LeSabre had the same body style up until 1999 in the rounded style. So it should fit just fine.
