  • Shaking front end

    Son's 2010 is exhibiting some shaking that feels a lot like warped rotors. Only problem is that the rotors are pretty new (10k). Also, it's intermittent. Seems to maybe be related to how much pressure is being put on the pedal. Maybe we got crappy rotors? Any other things I should be looking at?

    Rotors do sound likely. Make sure that the bearings don’t have slop, then check the rotors for run out.

    If they are Chinese rotors it’s not unheard of for them to be warped so soon, especially if they have been run hot or had panic stops

      To be clear, what's the process to check the bearings for slop? Am I just looking for play in the hub?

      I went ahead and ordered new rotors. Easiest way to rule that out.

        Don't forget tie rods and ball joints to look at too. Jack it up, put stands under, and push and pull the heck out of the tire. If something is loose you'll feel it.
