Hey all, yesterday I was driving to a little town here in AZ and there are some hills you have to go up to get there. While on the way down and braking, I noticed a wobble in the steering wheel and it felt like it was shaking the whole truck. So I chalked it up to a rough patch in the road. I thought to brake some more on a different section of road and it did it again. Going downhill I it did it every single time. Flat surfaces, its as smooth as can be. I thought I read somewhere on here that somebody had warped rotors and I thought that could be the problem, any thoughts? Oh it's a 2011 dblcab rw. Thanks guys

They could b slightly warped, since u were breaking downhill the breaks have to work harder to stop therefore projecting any imperfections. On level roads they r not compressing nearly as much. I felt the same thing coming back from the mountains where I live, it's a steep road to where u can get up to 75-80mph in neutral

Not really, if u haven't had a break job then what they will offer to do is cut the rotors, u can try to argue that cutting them will only put a bandaid on it. Then they will say well we can't replace em cause that's how long they last because of your driving, then u can argue back n they will too but depending how persistent u r n how much of their bs u can prove wrong u" might" b able to get new ones but it's a very small chance. So u have a few options, u can get slotted & cross drilled rotors for cheaper than new rotors at the dealer, u can deal with em til u need a brake job then have the pads replace n rotors cut but I recommend goin somewhere else cause the dealer will charge around $300. I have some brand new duralast rotor I can give u a little deal on if u want em. Either way good luck n let us know if need advice

There is a TSB for updated backing plates that cool better, tell them you want those and request new rotors, they should take care of that
