I just picked up a 2000 STS, 33K mi. and hada new set of Turanza LS-H's put on it and I still have some vibes. Firestone shop said I had a loose(worn) outer tie-rod and both the front and rear rotors are a little warped. My question is, are these items covered under warranty? Any help on how to address this with the dealer?

the tie rods maybe be covered. The rotors most likely are not covered. A warenty usually does not cover that parts of the brakes that wear out over time. ie rotors and pads.

Rotors are usually covered under the warranty. It's a judgement call on whether they're replaced or cut. Tie rod ends are covered.

...so I've got to replace the rotors (this is confirmed now). I want to go with an upgraded rotor and pad combo, slotted rotors and low dust pads - so does anyone have a rotor/pad set-up that's working form them?

I'm considering Brembo and ProSlot.

Much abliged,

My 200 SLS also has 33,000 miles on it. Just be sure to also get those tie rod ends checked while you still have warranty coverage. Oneo fmine was replaced only 3 months ago. This was the result of the oft-referred to front end clunk or wandering seen on these forums.
