Re: catera front rotors warping suggestions?
Before spending on new rotors try rotating your tires. I used to feel the same thing but when spring came and I put my summer tires/wheels on the pulsing went away. Could be that the difference in heat expansion rates between the steel rotors and alloy wheels allow the lug bolts to "creep" in their holes and apply stress that causes the rotors to feel warped. Putting a different wheel on seemed to relieve that stress, or at least redistribute it. Either way my pulsing disappeared. Maybe even loosening and retorqueing the wheels might do the trick.
When I upgraded my brakes I installed Brake Performance slotted/dimpled zinc coated discs. Lifetime guarantee and free shipping. They even toss in the pads for free. They stop great and look great too. (no affiliation, I'm just a happy customer)
thanks guys.. My mech suggests centric?? I guess he says they are pretty decent.. its deffinantly the rotors.. they are way bad now!.. and I changed air and cabin filter.. think the old one was dirty?? opps.. my bad on maintannce.. ha
I do have ceramic pads on the car. I have oem rotors on the rear they were fine.
the new rotors were installed today.. $136 for the 2 rotors. the old ones were pitted severly. the new ones have a 2 yr warranty.
