Brake shake with freshly machined rotors?

Page 7 of 7  


Got a better one? One that explains why turning the rear rotors fixed the problem? I'm trying to figure out how turning the rotors can rectify flat spotted tires (or how one would actually *get* flat spotted tires in a car equipped with ABS, unless you meant flat from sitting like old bias plys, but they've had more than enough time to work themselves out.)

To do what, make a coffee table base out of it? What in your mind makes the rotor "defective?" Because it is no longer in specification?

They require their dealers -service departments- to have lathes so that brake drums and brake rotors can be machined back into tolerance.

It's not misapplied, you just don't know as much as you think you do.

What if the new vehicle in question sat around for a few months before being sold? Ever seen how much rust can accumulate in that time? Being in Cincinnati, you should know about winter's damage.
