Rotors resurfaced

Going to get my front rotors resurfaced today. My steering wheel shakes like crazy when hitting brakes. I already had my front end looked at. A tie-rod end had to be replaced.

I'm also going with Ceramic Brakes. I hate Semi-Metallic brake dust, brake squeal... not to mention increase rotor wear from its metallic properties.

And Ceramic Brakes last longer too.

Re: Rotors resurfaced

I use ceramic pads myself. I don't know about the Autozone Duralast ceramics, they didn't hold up for me. The Wagner ceramics have held up great!

Be sure to check your rears also. Make sure the fronts aren't having to do all the work.

Re: Rotors resurfaced

Duralast makes two ceramics pads.. ones Gold and the other Gold-CMAX

I got the expensive CMAX. It suppose to be better... but I wouldn't doubt they're the same lol

My back seems to be fine. Front brakes takes most of the load anyways, that's why they are bigger/fatter and more expensive.

Just return from the brake shop. Now braking is as smooth as a babies ass :) I was going to do it myself but outside is cold and raining.

Re: Rotors resurfaced

Since I had my brakes done the car pulls to the right while driving. I just had an alignment done last month.. The air pressure is up to spec as well.

Reading up on this I came to the conclusion my brake caliper maybe dragging.

What do you guys think?

I agree. check for a kinked brake hose.
