    Was the seal that was torn on the caliper (hydraulic piston) or the sliding pin part? Could be loose lug nuts too...easy check.

    What many call "warped rotors" is actually parallelism. Warped rotors are a misconception spread by ignorant mechanics(past and present) and joe public. While technically it is possibly for the hat of the rotor to warp,it is virtually impossible to warp the disc itself, on a vehicle.

    The brake pad bed-in procedure, quality pads, lug nut torque and proper lubrication of the brake hardware are critical to preventing parallelism.

    Have the rotors resurfaced and replace the pads with a quality pad(Honda,Akebono,Nissin...etc...) Torque the wheels and follow a proper bed in procedure(basically no hard or panic stops for at least 200 miles)

    The car has powerstop pads and powerstop drilled and slotted rotors. I’ll call around and see who cuts them. Do you have a diagram possibly of the correct grease points and the correct grease?

    If your talking about the rubber seal for the pins. They come as a kit sometimes with the pads. Just make sure what's in the box before you buy. And yes warped rotors if it shakes while braking.

    Rule number 1 remove wheels and inspect brakes on both sides.
