Question about 2005 Lincoln Navigator
You can check the pads and see how low they are by removing the wheel, you Can also take and grab one of the front wheels when it is jacked up and wiggle the wheel from left to right is there any play? if so you have a steering linkage problem, normally the passenger stabilizer ar is bad, also put hand on top of wheel and another at the bottom and try moving it back and forth from the top and bottom if yo have play then you have a ball joint wore out or a wheel bearing. Look at the rotors and see if they have groves in them. If they do then you have a problem with the type of pads you put on, do the brakes grab? if so you will have to have the rotors cut or replaced run good pads semi metallic pads so they will last longer. With the key in the ignition turn the steering wheel back and forth with engine off, just enough ti see if yo have any free play, do not move the wheels, and if you get more than a 1/2 inch free play doing this then you have front end parts problem. Also the strut bearings on the shock towers could be broken test these as well and get back to me for more information.

Very unlikely that the rotors need replacing. They may have warped a bit and need to be resurfaced. Doubt that though. If it's shaking that makes you think that, you may just need to have your wheels rebalanced or check pads.
