So about 73k miles ago I installed the Power Stop brake kit on all four corners like a lot of guys on here recommended. About a month or so ago I started getting the steering wheel shake during heavy braking and high speed braking. It got really bad on our drive to Disney World at high speeds on I75. I took my truck in to the shop this morning to get a brake inspection done and they said my pads still had a lot of life in them and my rotors looked fine, not warped. I asked if they could turn them just in case and they said they can't turn grooved/slotted rotors (even though O'Reilly's will). I said if my rotors look fine then why all the steering wheel shake while on the brakes? The worker said let me talk to my supervisor and I'll be right back. He came back and said yeah you need new rotors. As you could imagine I was very confused and I told him that nothing really made sense. Of course he then quoted me $320 to put on 2 front cheap rotors. I said no thanks and left the shop so now I'm kinda stuck and don't really know what route to take? I guess I could take the rotors off and take them to Oreilly's to get turned and then see if that fixes the issue, but I hate to go through all that work and that not be it. I assume if I get my rotors turned that means I have to get new pads correct? It's just frustrating b/c I got 223K miles out of my original brake pads and rotors. I spend the extra cash on these "high performance" brakes and they don't even last me 70k? I would say 60k out of that 70k is highway miles too. Anyone have any suggestions or ideas? Thanks guys!
