VIBRATION UNDER BRAKING? IS IT WARPED ROTORS, WORN BEARINGS, FLANGE CORROSION, BALL-JOINTS?
A vibration under braking can often be due to warped brake rotors. However, there are a few other issues that can cause similar symptoms, to include; bake pad material transfer to the rotors, rust on rotor surfaces, rust or corrosion between the wheel mounting face and the rotor hub face, or the wheel drive flange and the rotor hub, weak control arm bushings and worn ball-joints.
Use the BAVauto Rotor Runout Gauge Tool BEFORE You Buy Replacement Parts!
This easy to use DIY runout gauge tool lets you quickly and easily check for run-out (warping) on brake rotors and wheel drive flanges (or check to see if rust or corrosion between the flange and the rotor hub (or hat) is causing a run-out/vibration problem), wear in wheel bearings and wear in ball joints. It features locking pliers that grip onto any convenient surface. The articulated gauge mounting arm allows the dial gauge to be placed against the brake disc, wheel hub or ball joint.
