My 2001 TJ (completely stock....for now Very Happy ) vibrates pretty bad whenever I hit the brakes but especially at higher speeds. I'm not much of a gearhead so all I could think of is maybe the rotors are warped? I bought the jeep used and it's done it pretty much since I got it (i know...should've caught it before I bought it). It shakes the steering wheel and all. Any ideas?

Definitely sounds like warped rotors to me...

Time for an upgrade Smile Some nice PowerSlots should do the trick.

X2....except I'll holdback the recommendation on the slotted or cross drilled rotors. They trap the dirt and debris in those spaces. A buddy just replaced his rotors for $21 each. Do a price check on the slotted or drilled ones.

I'll bite...where on earth did he get 21.00 rotors and were they made of tin foil?! Shocked LOL Wink

Seriously though, I have had the PowerSlots on my Jeep for quite a while...zero problems as of yet.

Hell my OEM rotors are in perfect condition (the ones I took off for the upgrade) If you were in my area...you could have them. They are just cluttering up my garage.

PepBoys ProStop brand....one piece rotors instead of the crappy two-piece jobs were removed. The Raybestos were $40-something IIRC and all you gained was a fancy box.

Go for the one piece. Stay away from the two piece because they get hot and warp pretty easily. Sure the solid cast 1 peice might be a little more, but hey its worth it.

The bigger problem with the two piece is that the two pieces can separate. The braking surface is press fit on to the hat. Under hard braking, they've separated and then boom....no front brakes.
