brake problems

I have noticed that since i put on my powerslot rotors that sometimes when i brake it shakes really bad. Mostly when i'm hauling a load. I went down the freeway the other day and got off a ramp and it did it so bad i could barely touch the pedal. Then after i got back on the freeway the next exit it didn't do it. I was towing my boat. I don't know if my calipers are causing the prob or what. Anyone else have this intermittent problem?

Mine does it when I'm hauling a trailer but I have stock rotors and I know they are warped. Did you give them a proper break in period? Maybe you have glazed the rotors already.

Yeah its intermittent. I will have to look at new calipers. I already lubed the pins once. I did the proper breakin period just like they said to.

Recheck your lug nuts. If their not all torqued properly you can get a vibration similar to warped rotors.

That's one of the pics the dealer in Milwaukee sent me when I was in negotiations to purchase. The only thing different now is the addition of an 8' Meyer snow plow and a tune.

I just ordered Powerslots and Hawk pads for it.
