You'd never be able to drill rotors with a press. You'd need an EDM. And you'd never get them balanced.

Rotors are hardened.

You sure it'* not driving style? That can have a lot to do with it as well.

There'* alot of factors. But the bottom line is the 2000 and newer Bonnevilles don't have the same warping issues the 92-99 do. 92-99 are under-braked. 2000 and newer are not.
