Re: Relpacing calipers

I use to drive like a bat outta hell bu have since slowed down and come to normal stops. (There must be a difference from 22 to 23)

The first two times that I changed the pads there was very little pad left and the front rotors were warped. Once I changed them there was no more "shimmy when you stop" when you stop. The past 2 times the pads looked pretty good but the truck was starting shimmy to a stop. When the pads were changed that time the shimmy went away and came back in about 2 months (see the pattern). Now that you mention it I have never done anyting to the drums. I did not think that there could be a chance that they could be warped. With the way the problem comes back after I change the fronts I am now wondering if when the fronts get worn a bit and the rears start picking up some of the stopping work if that is where I am getting the shimmy. Any thoughts on that?
