Need to repace front brakes and rotors, the car only has 31000 miles on it!!


The brake pads are well within a good long life. Brake wear life depends on a number of factors, the most significant is the driver. Most people feel that they are easy on brakes and that is usually not true...

Rotors are damaged by: normal wear; waiting too long for pads and damage from metal to metal contact; and HEAT. Heat damages rotors and causes them to warp. Cars now days have less material on the rotors and therefore they have shorter life.

On some vehicles it is only slightly more to replace rotors, versus resurfacing them. A resurfaced rotor has less material, so warping happens faster.....Some shops just routinely replace rotors, rather than resurface for just this reason.

Other shops routinely replace calipers, which can be agrued either way, but a caliper that hangs slightly will cause rotor warp. My preference is to replace calipers when they need it, by leaking or binding....

I have to replace my rotors on my 1997 GMC sierra Z71 about every three months due to warping. When I hit my brakes the truck will buck up and down something fierce. I took it to a few shops and all they...


what I think is your calipers are used to being in the outer extension of the piston stroke. when that happens sometimes moisture can set in and oxidize the piston surface, now when you shove the piston back into the caliper to clear the new pad it will stick to the walls of the bore and put to much pressure on the pads then come heat and warp. Next time you replace it buy the preloaded caliper and pad combo an bob your uncle, which mean you should be good. hope this helped.

My 1998 ford escort brake peddle started pulsing and then a noise. Checked fluid, not down any fluid, and no leeks, just feels like I can not stop well., No ABS lite til yesterday, then it came on after...


Normally a "pulsing" brake pedal means that that you have a warped brake rotor or the brake caliper is lose. I would start by taking the front wheel off and inspecting the brake pads and the rotor. If the brake pads are worn down bad replace them. Pay special attention to the brake rotors also as if the are grooved very bad, they should also be replaced.

Repeated warping of front brake rotors. Have replace rotors 3 times with both Chrysler OEM and aftermarket. Replace calipers, ceramic pads, etc. Still warps rotors in less than 5000 miles.


do you do a lot of hills work?if so use the gears ,ifdown hill not the brakes if it is auto then slip it down i gear . make sure your rear brakes are adjusted regularly,but for the main part i would think it is the driver that is the problem,you may get an occasional faulty rotor but not three sets, over heating is the cause of your problem.dont missunderstand me chrysler brakes arent anything special but they arenot that bad , slow down

Rotors keep warping. Parking brake=caliper sticking?


well first of all just because they can be turned dosent always mean that you should do it, now a days rotors are alot cheaper to just replace them, however whatch where you buy them. in most cases you get what you paid for, Like cheap rotor prices=less life, same for the pads and how hard the driver uses the pedal. and as for the "classic rotor warp" thats not always the case with these newer cars having more movable joints than ever befor, it could be, bad hub bearing,bad lower ball joint...etc....good luck

I have a 2003 quad cab 4.7 The steering wheel vibrates when braki


joseph, it probably was and still is a rotor issue. Most aftermarket (and even OEM) parts are made overseas, or at least out of the country. All it takes is to drop a rotor onto a hard surface, and presto, it's very slightly out of round (same as warped), and that rotor had to travel a long a bumpy journey to get here. Since the new rotors helped, I'm guessing they are a bit out of round from banging around in transit. I would bring them to a machine shop and have them cut to make sure they are true. The other possible thing to watch for is tightening your wheels after putting everything back together. Make sure you use the factory recommended torque, and tighten in a cross pattern gradually until the proper ft lbs are reached. I know of at least one car that had issues with warped rotors, and it was caused by improper tightening of the lug nuts. Good luck, and let me know how things turn out. Curt

Warped jeep rotors


Three items that can cause that are seized caliper slide pins, frozen (partially) caliper piston or an internally failing brake hose (rubber one from body to caliper) Problem with any of these will keep caliper partially applied and will overheat and warp the rotor. Also, I recommend torquing wheel lugs when assembling...use star pattern.

2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Front Brake Rotors warp within 3 months of replacement. Does not matter where I purchase rotors (NAPA, Dealer, etc.)Have used Ceramic and metallic pads, makes no difference.


actually i just recently found this out (to my dismay) you can't use an air wrench to tighten jeep wheels with disk breaks. it took me about 200 dollars in warped rotors to figure that one out. it's a hassle, but they dont warp if you use a breaker bar.
