If they are KAWASAKI pads, they should be fine.

07 camry brakes clatters when brakes apply, Can you help with the fix??


If you are saying the brakes chatter or there is a vibration when applying the brakes your rotors are warped. Remove the pads, have the rotors turned at a machine shop, and replace the pads with new ones, even if they look good. Warped rotors are caused by excessive braking at high speed, riding the brake pedal, or not correctly torquing the lug nuts to the correct lb/ft when installing the tire/wheel. Your owner's manual will list the correct torque which will be around 80 lb/ft. Make sure anyone removing a wheel use a torque wrench and torque them correctly.

Seems to be a front chattering when baking


Warped disc, or loose brake caliper bolts, or brake pads without retaining springs or simply the pads have worn right down and you are receiving the bump warning on the disc. Remove the front wheel(s) and inspect pads and then check brake caliper retaining bolts. Turn the wheel so that you have an unhindered view of the rear of the brake caliper assembly. Rotate the hub and as you do so watch what happens to the disc rotor between the pads. If the disc rotor is seen to deviate from what should be a straight spin then it is warped and will need to be changed. Check the other wheel to be sure and to act as a reference to normal function...it is rare for both disc rotors to warp at the same time. If one disc rotor is at fault the general rule is to replace the other at the same time.

I have a crunching sound coming from the front wheels when applying the brakes at a low speed and only after I drive the car a few miles


sounds like the pads have worn down, or there's debris between the pads & rotor. in my personal experience, the stock rotors from hyundai don't hold up very well. i replaced pads (front and rear) at around 45K miles, and had the stock rotors turned down. less than 1K miles later, the front rotors were already warped! there have been many complaints about hyundai's rotors, so i replaced mine with a set of raybestos rotors and also put ceramic pads up front. 20K miles later, they're still working great.

My 2003 expedition EB vibrates when applying brakes


the front rotors are warped ahd either need to be turned or replaced. use quality parts and motorcraft pads. if you use cheap rotors, they stand the chance of either being warped upon install or warping soon after.

Replaced front pads and rotors on my wifes 2005 ford escape,6 months ago and they were fine for about a month ,they started making noises again and now the rotors feel warped again,i noticed when i had to...


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!

Warped front discs


Here is what happens to cause this, rotors are as thin as poss to reduce weight and increase MPG, when you turn them you remove material and make them even more prone to warping the less steel the less heat they can dissipate, the hotter they run the more the are prone to warp, if you tow something the problem is compounded. To avoid the same issue in the future replace the rotors with name brand new ones, use the best brake pads available, cheap pads can and do cause rotor problems. I worked as a tech for 30 years and this explanation is what I learned in many brake classes I went to and in shop with hands on experience.
