Best way to fix warped rotors on 2004 Titan....

Just bought this truck yesterday, and the first two things I want to do is hopefully get some rotors that stop the steering wheel from shaking while baking... and also to flush the differential with synthetic oil, but the truck already had 260k miles, so I'm thinking of the differential isn't shot yet, then it can't be all that bad.

But anyway... What are the best rotors to put on that will prevent future warping? Are there any other components I should be changing or modifying (besides brake pads)?? Perhaps some new calipers would be in line to prevent future warped brakes??

I don't think the failing rotors on the early models was an inherent design flaw in the drivetrain, it was simply lousy rotors. I'm using Bosch rotors and pads and they work well. No, or low, brake dust issues and the stopping is far better than OEM. I did not replace calipers. In your case, I would be replacing the calipers, wheel bearing/hub assembly along with the rotors and pads. I'm seeing a pattern here in the forum on the bearings and it's starting to look like if you're replacing rotors then the wheel bearing aren't far behind.

For the SES, go to an auto parts store. They'll pull the code for free.
I've heard the terms used interchangeably.
