Just to screw up you guys even more think about this:
There is 2 kinds of warpage of rotors!
1.) Lateral warpage is when the wheel hasn't been torqued properly & has caused the rotor to warp when heated. This type of warpage can be measured using a dial indicator.
2.) The other kind of warpage occurs from the brake pads overheating the rotor under panic, hard stops. This causes the rotor to change colour to a blueish tinge.
The first type of warpage will be felt through the steering wheel, while the second type of warpage will be felt through the brake pedal when the brakes are applied.
Just some food for thought!

My torque wrench does not go up that for so I usually just guesstimate with the lug wrench.

I do'nt think i feel any vibration through the wheel what little I do feel is through the pedal.

There is a junkyard here that gets tons of brand new, 1999 and up, cars. If I were to get a set of calipers from a newer bonne they would fit on my 89 no probl right?

Under torquing the lug nuts is just as bad as over torquing them! You can get a cheap torque wrench that goes upto 150 Ft Lbs for under $50.00 CDN!
