Hey guys. I know 4 sure that i have warped disk. My question is that i have slotted and cross drilled on the front and were wondering if they still warp or would it be the rear disks? even though i feel the shudder through the stearing wheel could it still be the rears? I only purchased the car a month ago and the brakes were warped then and the rears have been machined way too much by the looks of it.
Thanks.

I looked through the service history and it says nothing bout the fronts being machined just the rears so i might just get the fronts machined.

Another thing that also makes you have brake shudder is seazed caliper slide pins.

When you remove the 2 13mm bolts from the front calipers,thats where the slides are they are on the top and bottom of the caliper itself.The bolts go through the slide pins.

its usually the top slides that are jammed.
if they are jammed,
remove and clean them, also clean the boots.
lubricate using rubber grease, $10 for a tube from almost any auto store.

It must be the pins because sometimes i get in the car and the brakes dont shudder as much as it does other times.
