Brake disk surprise
« on: May 11, 2019, 02:19:50 pm »
Hi all, I've been getting a bit of brake wobble at high speed braking & very low speed.
So I thought it's either the pads or disk warp, so I decided to change pads first & if that didn't resolve the issue I'd change the disks too.
As I took the wheel off I saw instantly what I'd guess was the problem! Have you noticed?

Hi Dave,

Mazda 6 OEM disks all seem to have a warping issue which leads to vibration under braking. I replaced mine with OEM style Brembos and I haven't had an issue since. Changing the pads is a good idea as well if you're changing the disks.

Concerning the broken wheel stud, although disconcerting, I don't think it would have anything to do with the wobble if the other lug nuts were properly tightened.

Hope this helps!

Cheers
