Well ive had some protex brake rotors and shoes for the last 8000 and guess what, they have started shuddering the steering wheel already.

have i guessed right (it is my rotors?)?? what should i do??

my mechanic also tells me i need a camber castor kit?? I couldnt imagine this affecting it?? toe-in would make the rotors possibly sit up against the pads and heat up, not camber castor??

I got quoted $260 for the camb cast kit fitted.

dunno, i leave it too the pros usually anyways.

Feedback appreciated.

yes the kit is a good price; altho i cant see it being the cause of the shuddering - that sounds ike rotors is when braking or wheel bearings if all the time.

Still doesnt mean you dont need the kit tho if you've lowered your car.

Not suspension related. Check for tyre wear to indicate suspension related problem.

Try getting your discs machined. Do them all

Could be a warped rotor

if you get toe in on the wheel the disk/caliper assembly has toe in as well
it moves as a whole unit!

camber kit is a good price!
