    I've had a problem I've been battling for a while and I wanted to post here to see if any of you had a suggestion I haven't thought of.

    Frist off I'm aware my model sport is tough on front brakes. I did a brake job last year and have about 10k miles on the brakes so far. I'm a little bit of a freak and like everything working perfectly always so when I did the brake job I upgraded to dimpled and slotted rotors with semi metallic pads in attempt to try and keep my rotors true and not warp as they wear.

    First set of rotors I put on warped almost immediately which I originally thought might have been because I zapped the lug nuts on with my gun. I replaced them this time taking care to torque them thinking I made a mistake the first time. This rotors stayed true for about 5k miles and then slowly started to shake over time.

    Now I have about 10k miles on them and when coming off the freeway I get a pretty good shake in the wheel. I'm aware that the lift kit I have on the truck in combination with the bigger tires is probably putting extra stress on the braking system and I'm noticing faint (not obvious) heat rings on the rotors.

    My question is, is there anything more robust I can try so I can eliminate this? Different pads or rotors someone with a similar set up has had better luck with. I'd love your thoughts if any of you have already gone though this.

    Thanks in advance :)
