severe vibration under breaking

severe vibrations through the steering wheel when break above 50mph, warped rotors for sure?? it doesnt pull to the left or right wen breaking just the steerin wheel reelly badly vibrates almost feels like the wheels are about to come off...

does everybody think its defo the discs and pads?

as last thing i wanna do is spend 100 plus replacing them and not have the problem fixed... has n e one else had this problem and resolved it?

cheers guys

Re: severe vibration under breaking

You could just have the rotors resurfaced if you're on a tight budget. You should replace the pads too because they could have problems now from gripping warped rotors

Re: severe vibration under breaking

I think most things would have severe vibration while breaking. Braking, on the other hand...lol

And yes, sounds like warped rotors.

That would not cause a vibration, it will just cause your ABS to not work until you fix it. Buuuut it just so happens that I have a front rightside wheel sensor for sale. PM me if you want it.
