I really just need to bring it in to the shop...once I have the money, lol. Much as I hate paying someone else to do it, I don't have space to work on anything right now. The apartment complex doesn't allow vehicle work in their lot. >

I need to figure out that noise and get my brake rotors checked...I think they're warped again and need replacing...I get shuddering when I brake. Got an alignment done and it's still doing it. Actually needed the alignment, wheels were all duck footed. I'm fairly sure it's the rotors, though. I had the rotors shaved down once before and I know they're more susceptible to warping after that. Might need to make performance front brakes first on my list....at least after the windshield replacement, lol!

I developed a clunk in my front end today (after doing struts and springs), so I need to figure it out after my business trip.

If you do rotors, you have to do brake pads as well (im sure you know that).
Just use OEM rotors, and either hawk or Monroe full ceramic brakes. Best thing you could do.

Help to actually read the posts...

Ok, so basically stock rotors with better pads should be enough?
