    front or rear warped?

    Damn warped rotors, I love my car but I hate stopping! I replaced the fronts a couple years ago with Brembo blanks with PBR pads. I left the rears alone. The question is how can I figure out if the warp is in the front or rear?

    if its in the front, the steering wheel will shake. If its in the rear, you can feel the brake pedal bounce back against your foot. I hear if you convert your calipers to 'vette ones, you can stop this problem completely. From what I hear, this is the best solution next to putting aftermarket rotors and calipers on. The problem with that is...they crack rotors. Hope this helps.

    I got warped rotors two. I am th esecond owner and my Bauers are warped. I had them ground and they were great for 6 months. Now they are wraped again. I have stock clipers with metallic pads. I am thinking it is the pads? I might replace them with Brimbos. Ant houghts on getting and keeping them staright.
    Thanks
