Bendix rotors warped; Powerslot or go back to semimetallic?
I installed Bendix premium rotors and Raybestos Quiet Stop pads on the '98 LeSabre about 9 months ago:
They were awesome til now.
Two days ago I started getting the same 50-70mph shimmy on braking that caused me to change brakes. Well, I take the front wheels off and the rotors are badly discolored and so warped I can actually see the highspots with the naked eye.
I guess the warnings about ceramics being able to eat up even good quality rotors were true
I love the ceramics' stopping power and quietness, but I don't want to be changing rotors so often. I could either get another set of Bendix and go back to semi metallics, or stay with ceramics and try Powerslots.
What to do...
