That what it sounds like to me if you hear grinding when you apply the brakes and shaking warped rotor. Is noise coming from the front or back ?

SWAMP_DOGGIE_DOGG 11:33 PM (9 minutes ago) to CarGurus well to answer that question ill say first thank you for responce ill say front wouldn't a warped rotor be due to metal to metal or something else ? also few times like it was hardly brake pads to stop her at lights or behind people and it jerked so she needs a new rotor or get it turned ? could there be more then 1 ?

A warped rotor can come from a seized up caliper or collapsed brake hose causing brake pad to stay in caged onto rotor heating up rotor causing it to warp resulting in the shaking when brakes are applied and the grinding come from the brake pad being worn down to the metal on brake pad. Best to just get new rotors.
