If you’re doing your own brake jobs, obviously you want to get the best stop possible. But even after replacing your pads and rotors, you might still be experiencing pulsation.

In many cases this pulsation won’t show up for several months, so you may not make the connection to the original brake job. That’s because the D-T-V or disc thickness variation that’s causing the problem takes a few thousand miles to develop on a new rotor.

It used to be that the run out that created this condition was caused by the rotor not being machined properly. Today, the source is most often the hub to which the rotor itself is attached.

The only way to eliminate this run out is to use an on-car brake lathe when machining the rotor. The old bench lathes just can’t do the job anymore. In fact, because of this issue, almost all auto manufacturers now recommend on-car rotor resurfacing for their vehicles. In fact, even after you install brand new rotors, excessive run out may still exist, and you may still need this service.

At Pep Boys, we can help you do the job yourself and still get that perfect stop. When you do your brake work, if you measure run out outside the manufacturer’s specifications, most of the time that’s two thousandths of an inch or more. We have the answer for you.

We can machine them to precisely to match your car with our state of the art on-car brake lathe. After you finished your next brake job, bring your car to us, and we’ll get your run out problem solved.

So come see the boys and we’ll help you complete the job, along with the best stop possible: http://storelocator.pepboys.com/pepboys
