[DML] Re: Steering column vibration when braking

I believe there is a problem with the rotor install - especially if you are saying that this has been going on from the first drive with new parts.

The hub to rotor surface is probably not clean. There can be lots of reasons that can cause a shake but, the end result has to be a ture turning rotor that is clean. Put the guage to the rotors and check them. This is a problem on a lot of DeLoreans. The run-out has to be small and the thickness uniform to exactness to keep the shakes out.

I have had to turn new rotors in the old days to get them correct. I have no idea how the new ones being offered today perform. I guess I will find out one of these days. My NOS rotors can't be used again when the brakes come due for replacement.
