Vibration when I hit the brakes

Hey guys when I break at over 80-90 km/h, I feel a vibration through my steering wheel but not through my pedal. I got my front end checked by a mechanic a 2 months ago and he said the front end looked fine. My brakes were last done @ 167 000km in May 2008 by Canadian Tire and the car currently has 195 000km on it. Could it be my rotors? Are our rotors pressed into the hub like the 5th gen Accords?

Isn't pulsating brakes a sign of bad pads?

If its not your rotors it sounds kinda like a wheel bearing.

could be warped rotors
could be bad pads
could be unbalanced tire/wheel

Man I've had the car for a while, and it seems that I'm ****ing with the

goddam right front brake every couple of months. It's warping the rotor

over and over and over. I rarely drive the car hard anymore, and I have

replaced the hub. It doesn't pull to either side when braking, so that

eliminates unequal pressure. What the hell else could be my problem?

I hope people aren't buying new hub assemblies because they don't know what an impact driver is.

It could be that the caliper is sticking from dirt/rust and isn't letting the pads release. I would probably take it somewhere with no traffic and speed up to 70 or so for a while and then down shift to slow down and use the e-brake to come to a complete stop. Then get out and if the left side is warm and the right side gives you a second degree burn I would say that's your problem. That would cause your pads to wear out fast and heat your rotor to the point of warping. imao

Have the same problem on my 7th gen, only happens when breaking at higher speeds, so general consensus is warped rotors?

the last brake service you had has nothing to do with warped rotors. you can drive away from the service station, have bad luck of events happen and have your rotors warped before you get home.

when the steering wheel shimmies during high speeds, it's usually an indication of a light warpage. you can test it out by braking a little harder during the high speed and seeing if the steering wheel shakes a little more.

That's exactly what I have, sweeeet then looks like I have a reason for some bbk or sweet break set up to look forward to in spring , no high speeds in winter anyway so I'll do just fine

3/4 inch socket wrench w/ Phillips attachment took out the screw that held in my rotors. screwdrivers are useless and impact wrenches strip the screws.

if you havent had your allignment and tires balanced. and its time for new brake pads, change out the rotors while your at it, if its showing it's age. 110,000+ miles

Thats what I do, so I take it our cars have the rotor over hub design and our rotors are not pressed in

Were they properly balanced? Were the rims new? If they're used, they could be bent.
