Hi guys

I have a vy ute and lately it has been like grabbing/grinding kinda feeling in my front passenger side wheel when I am going slow and braking at slow speed and also going around a corner with the pressure on that side, I can slightly hear it but can more feel it, a friend thinks my rotor might be warped but not quite sure?

When I jack the front end up and try to spin that wheel there is a point that it grabs a bit, but would this cause it to make a grindy bumpy feel?

Rotors have hot spots. Get them machined or replace them with a RDA/DBA units. Best to get the new units as the Holden ones will just burn up again.

hot spots and pad material buildup =/= warped.

warping is a myth.

/awaits debate.

Its called "runout" and there's nothing wrong with machining your existing rotors if they are not under minimum thickness.
