Default Front Brake Discs

Hello,

Would a warped disc cause vibration from the steering wheel? Seem that when I accelerate from 35mph to 45 mph my steering wheel vibrates. I looked at my pads and they seem to have plenty of meat left. But after driving around using the brakes for a few miles I hear a squeak from the front discs. Thanks in advance.

It could . Could also be about anything from a worn steering component to a sloppy u-joint .

If it vibrates at higher speeds, you might want to get the front wheels balanced.
i would do the alignment and balancing before looking into the other things unless you know for sure it's not the wheels or alignment.

You could also have broken belts in one of your front tires. It is most likely an out of balance tire though. Check your rims for built up dirt and gunk on the inside of the rim also. if there is any clean it out. You'd be suprised how just alittle bit of dirt can throw your wheel out of wack.
