Re: brake diagnosing

Either a wheel out of balance or warped rotors will cause this. Worn suspension components will exacerbate the vibration.

Re: brake diagnosing

if it only happens with brakes pushed down it should be rotor if wheel was out of balance it would b shaking no matter if you hit brakes or not

Re: brake diagnosing

Not necessarily. My brakes were brand new on my Accord - I replaced them so I would know when they were done - and still had a vibration issue while breaking. I had worn suspension bushings among other suspension items as well as a wheel out of balance. A little bit of balance on the wheel may not vibrate while driving, but when you load the suspension AND have a balance issue, it can most definitely show it's ugly face.

But you're right; typically it would be a rotor.

Re: brake diagnosing

also if you hitting brakes at sixty thats not a good idea unless you have to down shift or w e because braking at higher speeds will warp rotors with no problem

Re: brake diagnosing

Four wheel. If your rotors have grooves in them, they might be warped. It isn't always the case, however. As far as cost, it really depends on what you want. Rotors at a parts store will run you about $40 a piece for stock replacements. At RockAuto Auto Parts you'll spend between $17 and $82 a piece for them (they have a wide variety). You can get cross drilled/slotted rotors, but expect to pay at least $160 for a set, though they can cost upwards of $400 for a good name brand.


Poppycock is about the equivalent of bullsh!t.

Re: brake diagnosing

If you have lines in you rotor then you need new rotors and PADS, you would not want to put those pads on the new rotors it will destroy them.

Re: brake diagnosing

okay, so I have decided I am going to replace the suspension, because it needs it. I am also going to replace the brake pads and rotors. Anyone have any suggestions on what I should get for suspension and brakes. It would also be very helpful if someone could tell me everything you need to do the suspension
