    Rotor or wheel bearing?

    Vibration When Braking

    When I brake, especially if going over 40MPH or so, the front end seems to vibrate quite a bit. My brake pads aren't in the best condition and I have a new set of rotors and pads coming next week (ugh, I hate shipping time). Does it sound like something new rotors and pads might fix?

    Explorer to Aviator front brake upgrade

    Has anyone upgraded the front brakes on your explorer to the 13" rotors and slightly larger calipers from an aviator? I am about to do my front brakes and it looks like it should be bolt in as long as there are 17" or larger diameter wheels. The advantage would be going from a 12.07" to a 13"...
