BRAKES & ROTORS

2000 Mercury Station Wagon

Shakes or Wobbles problem
2000 Mercury Station Wagon 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 129000 miles

I recently had the brake pads changed and the rotors grinded. This is the second time in a year. When I stop at high speeds The car shakes or vibrates. What is wrong that this still is happening?
(I've had it fixed in two different locations.) I've spent enough money on this car and thought it would be fixed this time!

Just because the rotors were resurfaced that does not necessarily mean the hub assembly itslef is straight. Most shops use a brake repair machine to turn the rotors, there is more high tech equipment though that the dealer uses which actually turns the rotor while its still on the vehicle, so that the hub and rotor are straight as an assembly instead of possibly being mix matched by taking rotor off to turn it then place it back on.
