new DBA slotteds and now brake shudder :(
Gday, as some mite know i got a set of DBA slotted discs put in the front a few weeks back.
Now as soon as i got them there was a shudder while braking.
But as one of the weights on the rim had fallen off i figured that mite have been the cause.
Anyway, i forgot about it for a while, but now im trying to fix it.
1st i swapped the wheel to a balanced one, to se if that made a difference. No.
And I just got back from getting wheels alligned in the hope that mite help. No luck
When brakes were put on i drove like a grandma so as to bed em in properly, done it all right and still i get a shudder
Now what im wondering is is it likely i just got a set of dody disks?
Could i have warped them(even though they shuddered from day 1)?
Or is there another likely cause? Like something inthe calipers is stuffed?
The wheel bearings are fine.
Not particularly happy, as i got new disk so i wouldnt have the shudder of the old rooted ones/
