RE: Warped disc help

Hi Robert

In a round about way I tried this on the way home from work yesterday, I went and got the front wheels re balanced, so the wheels had to come off and go back on. Re balancing oddly enough has made a big difference, there is still a little judder evident but it's not as bad as before. I think I will wait until the pads have worn out (quite new) before I look at upgrading. Thanks for the reply though.

		Warped disks sound like a possibility.  Before making a major investment
		try retorqueing the lug bolts.  Loosen them and torque them back down to 81
		ft-lbs.  This may be enough to remove the shudder.  If not, well, it was a
		cheap try.
