    Brakes

    When I hit my brakes the wheel shakes and when I get to lower speeds I hear what sounds like a rough sound. Would this be my rotors? I know the inside camper seal is ripped but not leaking.

    How would I know if the calipers are bad? Could calipers cause them to warp? I have the powerstop aftermarket rotors and pads on now. It’s gotten worse. I’m going back to Honda rotors and pads next, I’ve never had a problem with them and they lasted a long time.

    When you changed brakes, did you lube caliper pins? If you didn't touch them, they could be seized. This is especially true if you had a hard time getting your calipers over the rotors. Kinda hard to mess up turning a rotor on a lathe, it can be done but HAS to be very uncommon.

    Yes the pins were greased. I might as well just replace the calipers then mess with the seals. Is that something that has to be oem or can aftermarket work?

    Steering wheel shaking is often the rotors warped. Other times it could be a bad control arm bushing. You’ll know if the caliper is bad since it will he seized. You can tell by one side of the brake pads has worn way more than the other.

    What is the correct way to check the control arm bushings? I did a visual and didn’t notice anything. I also just greased my sway bar links. Does anyone have the service manual for putting on rotors and pads and grease points?

    You would have to look for tips on the bushings. You can google torn lower control arm bushings and that should give you an indication of what to look for.

    Sway bar bushings shouldn’t cause steering wheel vibrations under braking. Do you mind taking pictures of your brakes especially around the caliper pins and what torn seal you have

    I’d have to have my friend take them off it might be a little wait. The rubber seal was ripped. The pins got plenty of grease because I did one side when my friend helped me.
