September 28, 2007, Newsletter Issue #82: Signs of Brake Rotor Warpage

Tip of the Week

Brake rotors can be badly damaged by warping or wear from bad brake pads. How do you know if your brake rotor is warped? When you hit the brake, you may feel a vibration or an oscilating/pulsing feeling. Basically, when you think about it, if you hit your hydraulic brake and it in turn sqeezes the rotor with the pads, and the rotor is malformed, you will feel that malformation through the pads and up through the pedal. If you don't get this fixed, not only are your brakes unsafe, but you can damage the front suspension of your vehicle.
