Question about 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I have the exact same issues as shannonschom and I'm wondering if there as ever a resolution to this. I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee with brand new NAPA rotors and pads. Get the same braking shutter.
I did notice the front left rotor developed strange marks on it relative to the front right. This happened in only the first few miles of test driving and stopping. The right rotor has nice smooth marks on it that go with the grain of the rotor. The from left marks appear every half inch and go perpendicular to the grain, so they look like tiger stripes. I guess if you could 'see' a vibration, this is what it would look like. Now my question is, why.... Caliper? Hub out of alignment so pads aren't making perfect parallel contact? Other?
You got shutter ......do you mean shudder when braking and if so the problem with your brakes are that the pads dont work well with the rotors (dont care what the makers say) just see if you can get your self a set of PRIME disc pads and fit them to the front and make sure that the whole unit are bolted on tight and no movement in wheel bearings....
