When the wheels are put back on, the lug nuts have to be torqued down to the spec's for that car, otherwise, the rotors will keep warping on you.

When I get down under 10 mph my brake pedal and floor board vibrate. but when I take it out of gear it goes away (auto)


Even though the rotors are 1 yr old they can and will warp. Those rotors run at a very high temp. All you have to do is drive through a puddle of water. Keep in mind those rotors were more then likely made in China need I say more?????? You need them turned and I hope you have enough metal on them so they can be turned. Factory rotors come with two spec. The first one allows rotors to be turned the sec. one is the dis-guard spec. New rotors from China come with only one spec. Which you guessed it, their already thin that is why they can warp early.

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

if you had brakes and rotors 6 months ago,did you do just front or just rear?
if you did front and squeal is in front,the new pads got hot and it glazed them,but the rotors are you pulsating pedal,are you sure they did rotors and pads?
there is no way this should be happening in 6 months.

My 1998 Chevy Silverado shimmys under moderate


I had this same problem with a nissan titan I had. The final resolve to the problem was the stock rotors were undersized. once bigger rotors got put on the problem went away for good. I drove it 2 more years without issue.

rather than replacing them you can turn them for about $10 each. IF you do not replace brake pads they will be doing the same thing again in about 4-6 months.

all repair shops turn rotors prior to changing brake pads.

POSSIBLY CHEAP PAD'S AND ROTORS WARPED FROM EXTREME HEAT EITHER FROM PADS OR HARD STOPS FREQUENTLY. I SUGGEST IF MONEY IS A PROBLEM GO TO THE DEALER AND GET MOTORCAFT PADS,A BIT CHEAPER THAN PREMIUM AND IF ROTORS ARE TOO THIN REPLACED THEM. ROTORS WILL GET WARPED AGAIN IF TOO THIN. HAVE A REPUTABLE SHOP DO A SLOW CUT,NOT FAST CUT ON ROTORS. SERIOUSLY,VEHICLE'S THESE DAY'S DO NOT WORK WELL WITH AFTERMARKET PART'S. FORD HAD DESIGNED THIER BRAKE SYSTEM TO EUROPE'S DESIGN TO OPERATE A CERTAIN WAY AND ABILITY. IT WILL BE COMPROMISED WITH AFTERMARKET PARTS. LOOK FOR SPECIALS AT DEALERSHIP, CHEAPER THAN YOU THINK FOR A BRAKE JOB THESE DAY'S WITH A WARRANTY ON THE JOB!

Front in shakes bad


Would suggest getting the rotors machined rather than replaced. After the Thickness variation occurs ,then the metal has already taken it's "set" and will stay true longer.
Rotors are cheap now,but go "out of round quickly"
