    Cool

    I knew I should not have been bragging how good Big Red has been running.
    I picked up a pulsation when stopping.I can also feel it a ow speeds.
    I thought it was the new tires.
    The guy at the tire store said it was the brakes NOT his tires.
    I installed a pair of brand new drilled & slotted rotors .
    So now I am going to buy yet another set of new front rotors.
    First I am going to bolt my winter cragers back on the van.
    If the pulsation goes away. It is the new tires &wheels.
    it will take a little work to prove my point.
    He played the I have been doing this for forty years card today.
    I told him it did NOT shake until I bolted these new tires & wheels onto the Van.
    He insists it is the brand new brakes I just installed.
    Glad it is not too cold yet..
    Its a "van thing". A life style you have to live to understand!!!!

    I had a pulsation on my S10 after first changing to drilled and slotted rotors a couple months ago but it has gone away. It also was pulsating before I changed them but the old ones were warped. Maybe give it some time . The first thing I thought after changing them that maybe it was the tires but they only pulsates when I had to brake so I figured it had to be brakes.

    Just have to remember the rotors are now made in China. I just bought calipers for my 2003 S10. Guess what, ACDelco's are made in China.
