Hey guys,

So, new problem with Groot....

If I apply the brake while on a sharp left turn (I.e. getting in my damn drive way), I get a horrific, heart stopping grinding from my passenger side brake, which can be felt clearly in the brake pedal.

And floor.

And windows.

Thoughts?

Wheel bearings? Rotors? How are they? Where the rotors checked for runout? If they were replaced were the new rotors checked for runout on the hub with a dial indicator, and positioned accordingly on the hub to get the least possible runout? Not seeing or driving the vehicle makes diagnosis a little harder. But that's what I'd be checking first.

Did you not replace the rotors? That would be my first place to check. I just replace rotors with the pads. Hope its as simple as that for you.

yeah, looks like rotors will need to be replaced.

was hoping not, as landed here are going to be around $200 *each* for basic OEM replacements.

uggh.

Are you going downhill onto your driveway? I felt the same vibration once in a while when turning into a parking lot usually going downhill, but not always. This is on a brand new 17 JKU. The vibration felt exactly like my Toyota sequoia when the skid control kicked in. I brought it to the dealer and they couldnt replicate it so no resolution.

I have a feeling it migt be either an overly sensitive traction/skid control or abs system. A lot of posts on different forums mention it but no definitive answers.

Weird thing is once I upgraded to 35's it never happened again. This tells me if wasnt anything related to the brakes and more of the system not reading something correctly when I first bought it, if that makes sense.

Ouch, I dont want to say the cost of livin in paradise! Its funny how the rotors basically get scarred to the pads and any imperfections will be felt. 200 each is a big trout to swallow. Are you able to go aftermarket any cheaper?

I’ll certainly be looking, that’s for sure!

Currently on family vacation in Cuba, so not allowed to shop for jeep parts, but will be on the list as soon as I get back to ‘paradise’!!
