brake wobble

Post  sti_fairbs on Fri Sep 17, 2010 8:26 am

afternoon folks, got a snag with the STI. fitted godspeed discs and DS2500 pads on the front about 2k miles ago and all was fine. that was until about 2 weeks ago.

now once cars been running abit, and i go above 60, i get a slight wobble in the wheel, this gets stronger as i go faster, not excessive but its there. and when i apply the brakes even lightly it intensifies.

ive taken the car to enginetuner in plymouth (he worked on the new scooby cossie)where he took it for a spin. he said well the discs arent warped, as u'd be able to feel it at slow speeds aswel, even when cold. said maybe an issue with the pads, i was like these are supposed to be good pads 9should be at the price).

anyone any ideas? should i try changing the pads to maybe the new ebc blue stuff's?

cheers folks hope ive got my problem over

Wheel wobble is usually wheel balancing.

Wobbling when braking is usually brake discs.

So, I would get your wheels balanced/checked for balance before anything else.

Forgot to mention in the initial post, tracking and balancing have been done twice by 2 different garages. 2nd time they were spot on!

do you still have your old discs? Try then back on if you do to eliminate the problem one way or another. Thats if the problem wasnt there on the old set up.

unfortunatly i cant put the old discs back on, they cracked after a very hard session on some great roads around lock lommond, and then went thru a puddle, which caused the nearside to crack. subaru wouldnt pay out either.

Hi

I'm aware that some of the new hatches have had wheel bearing problems

With some being replaced under warranty etc etc.

Maybe thats your problem.

FWIW what Alan @ Enginetuner doesn't know about cars is nothing... so I reckon your brake set up is 'still' fine.

PS the Ferodo DS2500 pads are excellent (I've got them on mine)
