No shortage of threads on the subject, but I wanted to post this since I have some questions answered already.
1. put new rotors and pads all the way around last week.
2. did the break-in as in the paperwork, and everything was fine.
3. drove for 2 days (but never really got to interstate speeds).
4. went on a road trip last week and the first time I was at 70 and had to brake.....judder.
I had an alignment before leaving, and aside from the guy mentioning the caster was a little more right than he'd like (but within all tolerances and not going to cause tire wear) there were no problems.
I plan on taking all the rotors off today and re-seating them to make sure they are all seating properly.
I used the phillips set screws on all of them to make sure that they were even when I put things back on. Maybe i missed one. Definitely feels like the front end.
1. calipers? They compressed fine with the spreader when going back on. No real trouble. But I'm wondering if they are not retracting properly?
2. pins? I cleaned and greased them. Could any air trapped the boot I may have missed cause this?
3. warped rotors? I just got them out of the box from power stop (via Amazon). Is it often you get fresh from the box and they are warped?
I had planned on changing out the calipers anyway just to slowly swap out the major components. Maybe if the re-seating of rotors doesn't do it I'll go that way.
Because I experienced the judder: Does this mean I've now warped the rotors? I made sure to allow the vehicle to slow to 'non-judder' speeds before breaking while out this week.
thanks to all as always.
