137 Brake rotor warping




Description

This article is from the Chrysler-Plymouth-Dodge FAQ, by Dr. David Zatz with numerous contributions by others.

137 Brake rotor warping

The dealers have received a bulletin saying that if cars come in with less

resulting in warpage soon thereafter. I always go over each lug with a
torque wrench set at 90 ft lbs. (Ted Ruscha)
