    Stopping feels rough

    Ok in my 97 concours i have had it about 6 months now and it has about 87,000 on her. When going at high speeds like 60 or so and then I have to hit my brakes it pulsates really fast. And at slower speeds it does the same. It just doesnt come to a smooth stop anymore. Could this be my rotors? or time for new brake pads?

    Rotors..... They most likely dont need replaced, just trued... They will take a lathe to it and smooth them out... If you can take off the rotors a decent shop should be able to true them.....

    I agree. Check the runout on them (you'll need a micrometer to do this). A machine shop can do this for you as well. But also, watch the price of truing the rotors. If they want more than $10 a piece, just buy new ones. They are cheap.
