front end shake after brake pad replacement
i just replaced the front brake pads,put on ceramics because i was told they would not wear out
the rotors as bad as metallic pads.now when the brakes get hot i get a bad shimmy.anybody
have an idea why.
Maybe you have warped rotors I have seen it before
Ditto on the warped rotors, did you clean and lube the caliper slides when you replaced the pads? Make sure the the brake calipers are releasing properly.
Ceramic brake pads will wear out a rotor. Anything rubbing on the rotor will wear it out. Ceramic pads are better known to produce less brake dust. -- Many times the pulsation of the brakes is blames on warped rotors. The problem is actually pad material unevenly deposited on the friction surfaces. -- When the brakes are applied, material from the pad sticks to the rotor during what is called "bedding in". Clean, sand, turn down or replace the rotors. Perform a bedding in process as per the pad manufacturer.
