Brakes

Everytime I break my steering wheel starts to shake. Is it the rotors or the pads? When I look at the pads I still have a good amount left.

Rotors need to be turned or replaced.. Be a good time to replace the pads too.

i just had to do all 4 of the brakes and rotors because of the same thing but you will need a brake piston pusher to do the rear brakes

Agreed! I definitely recommend doing both at the same time!

Yes don't push the piston in or risk damaging it. Autozone and orileys rent it for free just pay a deposit

I always just replace the rotors/drums when I do a brake job. Less BS.
