Im going 60mph down the highway, hit the brakes to slow down or stop wheel shakes a bit. not violently but enough to be annoying. I know its not the "death wobble". Im replacing the pads this weekend. Any suggestions on the shake?
If it happens while braking, its probably warped rotors. Just have them turned, or machined down a little to make the contact surface even. If the rotors have a good thickness, then they wont need to be replaced. My local mechanic has a rotor lathe and will take care of that for me when the problem arises.
I have had a similar problem with my ZJ. An easy way to tell, take the rotors off, and lay them on a flat surface and see if its flat, if its not then you know its your rotors. I wouldnt have the rotors machiened down....just get all new ones to be safe!
Warped rotors sounds like the culprit here. And as a couple people have said, don't bother with having them milled down. The milling doesn't always work, and brakes are one of the few things that its probably not worth saving $5.00 on. I prefer not to HAVE to downshift and/or use the emergency brake to stop. Replace the pads at the same time if they look worn. I priced this out at Advanced Auto the other day, and for the "premium" brakes, I think I was looking at about $70 for the front end brakes... you could get lower quality brakes for less, but I tend to be hard on the brakes with Florida drivers doing stupid things in front of me. I'm not a Floridian, I just live here temporarily
