I have a '99 Honda Accord EX sedan 4-cylinder v-tec with 177k miles on it. At 145k miles my rotors warped (shaky steering wheel while braking), so I replaced them (first time they had been replaced) and the brake pads. The problem left for about three months before returning. I then replaced the rotors again, and again the problem went away for about three months before returning. At this point I replaced the master cylinder, front rotors, and pads. The problem again went away for about three months and now is back. The front wheels seem to be hotter than usual after a short trip while the rear wheels seem to be cooler than usual. My neighbor said all of the braking is probably coming from the front wheels (little or none from the back wheels) and causing the front rotors to overheat/warp. Is this possible? How could I test/fix this? When I replaced the pads and rotors, the calipers are very smooth and I lube up the sliders. Could this be an ABS issue? Any ideas?
