2002 2WD DODGE RAM 1500 QUAD CAB 4.7L - AT 25000 MILES, DEALER FOUND WARPED FRONT ROTORS CAUSING MY DESCRIBED HARD SHIMMY IN FRONT END WHILE BRAKING. SOLUTION WAS TO TURN ROTORS TO ELIMINATE THE WARPING. AT 29500 MILES, TOOK TRUCK TO DEALER AGAIN, AND DEALER INFORMED THAT ROTORS NEEDED TO BE TURNED AGAIN, AND IT NEEDED NEW PADS TO CORRECT THE SHIMMY. NOW AT 32000 MILES, SHIMMY IS BACK AND DEALERS ARE SAYING TRUCK NEEDS NEW ROTORS. SHOULD NOT HAVE TO REPLACE ROTORS ON A TRUCK THAT DOES NOT HAUL, TOW, OR IS DRIVEN HARD. I HAVE OWNED TRUCKS OF OTHER MAKES, AND NONE NEEDED BRAKE ROTORS UNTIL AT LEAST 75000 MILES. I FEEL THERE IS SOME PROBLEM WITH THIS PRODUCT THAT SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED. TO THE DATE, I HAVE SPENT OVER $400 FOR THESE REPAIRS, AND THEY EXPECT ROTOR REPLACEMENT TO COST NEARLY ANOTHER $400.

Now lower prices on ALL K&N products. Save up to 15% / $85.
