The car was shuddering bad. Yesterday I put new front rotors on and that took care of most of it, but it is still noticeable and it only happens when i am braking. Possible the rear rotors are warped or bad too? Seems like it is mostly in the front, but I know how the shuddering can travel through the car to the front. Anyways, any help will be greatly appreciated. thanks!!

Yes, make sure the release is working so you don't lock up your rear wheels at 60! Then apply it a few times to see how it feels. Like I said. it's usually most noticeable over 55.

Thanks for the advice. It was the rear rotors that were bad. New ones and stops like a new car.

I've had a lot of rear rotor problems on my 1997 Eldorado. Tirerack.com sells a smooth sided Brembo rotor for about $45 last I checked that has been good to me so far.
