The brake pedal and steering wheel begin to vibrate and the front end of the car as well when I would brake. I replaced the rotors and pads and the problem came back the same day. I was told that it might be because I did it myself and forgot to tune / adjust the rear drum brakes and as a result the front ended up doing all the work and got so hot that it warped.
About every 2 months i have to replace my brake pads and shoes as well as pay to get my rotors turned. It is getting ridiculous, i even replaced my calipers and CV shafts last time. 2 days later i had squealing breaks and vibrations again with reduced brake capacity.
