Baer Extreme Front Brakes - Front End Shudder

Recommended Posts

I have a set of the Front Baer Extreme brakes - 14 in slotted and drilled rotors, 6 piston calipers on my SGT. Probably way more brake than I need, but I got them as part of a great SAI sale a few years ago.

 

About a year ago I noticed that on a hard brake over 60 mph the front end would shudder. I thought maybe warped rotors. I called Baer Tech and they said to get them checked out and to burnish the pads with a red scotchbrite pad.

 

I took the car to a local shop and we put each rotor on his spinner and checked it with a dial indicator and all was okay. We also burnished pads and cleaned everything.

 

It was marginally better for awhile, but is now doing it again. Wheels are also balanced and true. I'm about getting ready to just order some new rotor rings but before I do does anybody have some tech suggestions on what else to try? Has this happened to you? Thanks,

Dave

So an update since I posted. I called Baer Tech and they said to go through the pad bedding process again, so I'll try that and see what happens.

Car is stored for winter now. I went through the pad bedding and rotor seasoning process last fall. Overall it didn't really help. My next steps next spring will be to pull all tires and have them rebalanced and rotate front to rear (I have 20 x 9 all 4 corners). See if its a wheel/tire issue rather than the brakes. If that doesn't work then I may buy new rotor rings and pads and see if that fixes it. If neither of those things fix the problem then I will likely just go to another manufacturer's brakes, possibly some Shelby Willowwoods.

I just picked up a set of Baer 14" 2 piece rotors for my Brembo package and I know the rotors are specific to left and right any chance you have the rotors flip flopped?

No, I checked that too. The rotor hats have an R and L on them and I assume L is drivers side and R is passenger, right?

Just reporting out on an old problem. After many months of trying different things I put new rotors on and problem solved. Car stops on a dime and no shudder. Even though I had the old rotors tested, that must have been the issue.
