1999 SL1
Default Strange front end problem with my SL1

I had an intermittent vibration problem with my 99 SL1 that was very annoying. it was a combination of some bad plug wires and a sticking front drivers side caliper. When I went to remove the rotors to turn them, the caliper had to be hammered off! I had saved the receipt for the caliper, so I got a new one free from the Zone. (They had been installed in Feb of 2016). I also tried to get my rotors turned, but since they were ventilated, the shop said they could not turn them. I bought new regular rotors, and no more vibration, and pulsation during braking.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: Strange front end problem with my SL1

Sounds like you fixed it. I think cheap rotors warp easy when overheated (maybe from the caliper sticking?). My old Saturn had braking vibrations. It got wrecked before I put them on, so they went on the new Saturn and life is great.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
