Hi, I've got a 2003 F350 with about 80k on it. The steering wheel has started shaking while braking. Are warped rotors the likely culprit? Is there something else I should be looking for? Any ideas/help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Was the problem consistent? I've noticed for example that mine was worse yesterday. Today it's hardly been noticeable but then again, I've only just begun to notice it over the last few days. Those of you that have the same problem - once it started was it consistent and/or did it get progressively worse?

I've also heard that once the rotors are warped, getting them turned is relatively useless as they will begin to warp again quite quickly. I've read that replacing them is a better option. Any thoughts if this is truth or fiction? If true, any opinions on a better rotor?

Sorry for my ignorance on all this - I simply don't know what I don't know. You know?

Thanks DarthSurplus,

I'll give it a try. It's supposed to be really cold here over the next week so I'll wait until the threat of black ice is gone. I'd hate to fix my brakes, only to trash the truck doing it. I put it in the ditch going backwards at 75mph (with a 24' trailer) last Feb. I don't want to repeat.

Thanks for the detailed response! :thumbsup:
