I must admit that I have never used a torque wrench on a brake job, I just tighten everything securely and go on about my binness! LOL
Seriously though. I just tighten them securely and I have never had a problem. Hope this helps and good luck.

2005 chevy uplander. I put new rotors on the front along with new ceramic brake pads. The calipers have not been a problem so I did not replace them. After doing all of this I now have a heck of a shake...


did you clean the surface where the rotor sit. normaly a vibration while braking is rotor are out of line (pad touch and don't )wave rotor.But clean surface where the rotor sit and make sure the two pins of caliper slide freely. and very important tight wheels nuts to spec torque.

I had new pads installed on the front of my 2005 chevy equinox, the rotors were turned and it stops perfectly execpt the front right wheel always squeaks and is geting worse even though I used the 20/30...


I personally never have had one braking issue, in 47 years
of doing brake work,on any vehicles

That said & not to write book here

The brake work & choice of friction material
(brake pads) was not done correctly

Very few shops remove rust from anything
Rotor mounting surfaces,wheel hub surfaces,
calipers,caliper sliding surfaces,pad siding surfaces

Then they use no lube, so pads can move & release

They don't use MFG Specific & quality pads

A proper professional job would go for at least
$300.00 for front or back,just 2 wheels

Rotor machining is critical

I think your OEM Rotors that were machined, most likely
were okey new & not a good grade of Chinese Steel to
be machining

Noise coming from front brakes or wheel ,i change brake pads


Did you have the rotors turned? Did you check for rotor runout? Did you remove all rust from hub face and rotor mounting surface? Did you remove rust from caliper or pad slides? Lube all caliper and pad sliding surfaces? Are the pads application specific? Did you flush and bleed the fluid? Did you torque the wheels properly?

Rotors can not be checked with a straight edge!! They have to be checked with a micrometer to see if they are within factory specs, then have the rotors turned or replaced. However sounds like it's the rotors.

Car shakes every time when appling brakes


The rotors are warped, need to replace them, also when the wheeles are put back on, the lug nuts need to be tourqued down to the specifications for that car, or the new rotors will warp again.
