    Is that clunk a clear indication of control arm bushings? I hear the clunk on the right side going quickly over bumps. I assumed it was bushings.

    Could be a few things, but try the brake test too.

    The clincher is when they puke their inner fluid on your driveway.

    Interesting on the issues with the aftermarket brake parts.

    I just did front and rear brakes on mine and used aftermarket parts for the first time. I think this is third time doing the brakes within 90,000 miles.

    Roughly 400 miles in now, with no issues.

    The pads I used don't seem to have the "bite" that the factory pads did, but they also don't dust like crazy like the factory pads did.

    Aftermarket is fine if it is quality.

    This starting happening right after the brake job. I can't imagine they warped a few miles after I picked up my SUV.

    I purchased some Centric rotors.

    I'm thinking you got some defective rotors.

    As I mentioned before I had two sets of Raybestos "Professional" rotors that were beyond run out spec out of the box. Have the shop measure the runout on the hubs themselves (should be 0.001 or so) and then install rotor and measure runout again. In fact they can measure the runout on the rotors while installed if they lift the front end.

    In that case the rotors were already warped out of the box or the rotors were not properly seated on the hub. Try brakes from max brakes, I have been using them on all my cars for over 4 years with zero issues, their prices are unbelievable too..
