    Braking Problem

    Right, over a year ago i but on some new mintex front discs and pads on and after a few months my car started to vibrate when braking for roundabouts etc. So decided to upgrade my discs to some Tarox Gs88, but leave my mixtex pads in, but after a few hundred miles my problem is still there, so again changed my pads to yellowstuff and guess what same problem.

    So what can be the problem???

    Take the discs off and clean where they mount onto the hub, could be something as simple as a bit of grit causing it to sit on there unevenly

    sounds like warped discs but its what making them warp, could be siezed or nackard calipers.

    jack it up, spin the wheel and see if it's scuffing as it rotates.

    It will a bit normally, but if gets a stiffer as it rotates then it's a pointer to the problem

    Just been speaking to my mate and he thinks it could be my rear discs and pads making my car vibrate.
