Default Re: Slight Shake with New Brakes

All else being equal it sounds like resin transfer onto the rotors. With new pads and, possibly oil on the new rotors, you can get glazing if you make a hard or long stop and then sit at a light with the wheel not moving. If you can see a ghost pattern of the pad anywhere on the rotors or a different coloration on the rotor surface you will have to de-glaze the surfaces and redo the pad break in.
Pre-baked pads are supposed to help. I still do a burn-in run on them anyway.
If you do have new pads and get stuck at a light give yourself enough room to creep forwards until the brakes can cool a little.
Shakes while coasting can be a few things. Folks often overlook the tires.
Dura-last, meh. Haven't used them on a Saturn. Didn't care for them on trucks.
