Brake issues.

Hi guys. I'm having a issue with my SRT.
I just purchased this 2014 SRT and it came with a Rotora BBK. But after taking it on the highway, I noticed it had a weird vibration when trying to brake after 50 mph or higher.
Upon examining the rotors, you can clearly see the brake press marks on the rotor. Can they be warped? Caliper not pressing properly?
The driver side has it way more than the passenger side.

Re: Brake issues.

Calipers warp all the time. An early sign is pulsing when braking from a high speed like getting off the high way. After a while it can definitely cause a vibration while driving.

I've seen a combination of pads or sliders not moving appropriately. You can rule out the caliper by using a couple of flat head screw drivers to pry them open while still attached. If the open up easily your calipers are probably all set. If they don't move then take them of and check the sliders. Either way sounds like a minimum of a pads and rotor job.
