There is very little pulsating and a lot of vibration,
There is a bit of noise from the vibration once the pedal is used. There is not
the normal pulsating associated with this as I had quite a bit of trouble with
my 2006 impala.
Can you also help me understand something too.
I'm 46 and grew up around construction equiptment. Actually fixing and
repairing and My dad had told me these few things.
1. do not step on your
brakes going through standing water, mud puddles, water in the road, etc. that
it would warp the rotors.
2. do not step on the brakes going over rail road
tracks and speed bumps as it messes up the front end allignment.
statements true? Were they true with old disc and drum brakes and no longer an
issue with the new brakes.
My hubby and I are at each other over these two
thank you for your help,
I would have the suspension checked. It's possible that something else is wrong and you're feeling it through the brakes.
As for the other questions, I have never heard of either of them.
I can't think of any reason why braking in water would warp a rotor. Most of the time rotors get warped when the shop tightens the lugs nuts too tight. Driving through water would not affect this.
As for braking on railroad tracks, I can't think of any reason why this would cause and alignment problem.
I would have to say, to the best of my knowledge, that neither of these things is true.
