brakes on a 2007 impala

Recommended Posts

I have the warped rotor wobble when i use the brakes on my 2007 Impala. Its not that bad yet so i want to nip it before it gets worse.

From what i can tell the pads are still good. can i just take the rotors off and have them turned, and put all back together? I've done them a bunch of times on my pickups over the years, but they were older, is there anything special with particular car i need to watch out for? I am only doing the front 2.

You should be able to bring yours into get them machined, but it wont be as good as having them done on the car.

Also don't be surprised if they are not thick enough to be turned.

I think a 13mm and a 15mm are all that is needed to get the caliper of. If your just turning the rotors you can remove the 2 bolts that hold the bracket into place and remove the caliper and bracket in one assembly. Make sure to torque the lug nuts when your done. Improperly torquing or the lack there of can lead to them warping again. Also keep in mind that you can make a rotor true but you can never take the warp out of a rotor. The likely hood of them warping again if turned and properly installed is slim but it can happen.

sounds like its somethign i can handle. What ft-lbs do lugs nuts need to be torqued to? Im sure the place that rotates my tires doesnt torque properly, they jsut hammer on it with the impact and call it good.

Page 406 of your owners manual, 100 lb-ft.

Next time you see them put on the tires see if there using a grey or blue extension on there impact that is about 8 inches long when they put the tires back on. If so they are using a torque stick which has become very common. I have been using them for over ten years with very few comebacks for lose tires (zero loose tires) or warped rotors.

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
