Default Warped Rotors???

hey everyone, i recently just got from a year deployment in Iraq. Had my ol' lady drive the truck to and from her work once a week and sometimes on the weekend. Anyway, So dodge tells me my rotors are warped after I complain about a rotating vibration that I could feel in the pedals. So of course I have them re-surface them. Now, at light braking theres a clicking noise thats pretty loud coming from the left front. Of course when I took it back to them, and they test drove it, it didn't make the noise. All they did was take wheel off, look around and then put it back on. So I figured it was good to go. But no, very next day, its clicking again. WTF??? Any ideas?

Might be a rock in the tire. I don't know of anything in brake systems that would cause a clicking. May just want to pull the tire and rotor and put it back on and see if it happens again. Inspect it while you have it all off. Good luck, let us know what you figure it out to be.

Welcome back! Thanks for your service! As for your clicking, I don't know, so I would stick around for more advice.

If the surface of the rotor wasnt refinished smoothly enough, it could be causing noise.

ramtech, thats what i was thinking. it def isn't a rock in the tire though. thats the first thing i checked even tho you can tell from the sound that it isn't a rock in the tire. it makes a clicking/ tapping noise when applying light pressure to the brakes.

You might want to make sure that the bolts holding your calipers on are tightened all the way. They would have to take them off to resurface the rotors, and maybe they didn't get them torqued down tight and they are a little loose.

I have seen this before on cars.

Sounds like the anti-rattle clips. They probably reused the old ones.
