enjoy reading mostly stupid questions and getting no replies to the serious seeming ones. Even more entertaining when the question posted is actually the answer.When help is actually desired (like uh- if you reply to a post) , I will do my best to lead you to a fix , or at least suggest what might be the most cost effective , depending on resources and skill level.

Brake rotors(front) are probably warped. IF this symptom was not present prior to the rack replacement , then the front wheel lug nuts are probably unevenly & over-torqued leading to the rotors warping. Either way the fix would be to resurface(if still within limit for machining) or replaced (with new pads if existing pads are at or below 1/2 life).
