Question about 1996 Chevrolet Suburban
You can't see when the rotors have uneven surface this happens after time by the heat in the braking turning the rotors is recommended but if you have doubt start by adjusting the rear brakes that will share the brake load this is something to do every now and then . rise the rear tires and look in the back or the inner side of the drum there is a slot about 1 inch long and insert adjusting tool or flat screw driver to turn the adjuster as you turn the wheel by hand it has to be on neutral so it can turn and the adjuster is like a little wheel whit teeth all around it will only go one way so you will have no problem as you adjust feel the tire is going to be heavier you should be able to turn by hand so when you know that is heavy enough move to the other one same procedure if this is not fix it completely it will do good to the truck in many ways like in u joints transmission and differential. then you can turn rotors if need it please let me know if i was helpful i'll be glad to help if you need it thanx.

The rotors may look good at a glance, but it sounds like they have warped - this can happen from overheating, or even running through a puddle of water after braking downhill etc. Try taking them in to an auto parts store - most parts places like autozone will measure them to check if they are below minimum thickness, and will turn them on a lathe for a small fee to get them running true again.
