Brake rotor shudder fix and surface conditioning kit
- Manufacturer: AlconKits
Every warped brake disc that we’ve investigated with the assistance of our suppliers shows uneven patches of friction material from the brake pads on the surface of the disc. These patches cause variation in thickness (run-out) and the vibration under braking. Brake manufacturers have been struggling to deal with this situation for years because warped discs are so readily blamed for brake-related vibrations.

NOTE: This material is specially designed for surface prep of brake rotors. Using the wrong abrasive can cause more issues with your brake rotors as certain particles like silicon and others will embed themslves into the rotor metal matrix and cause additional uneven deposits after only a few miles making the problem worse rather than better. DO NOT use just any abrasive pad on your rotors!
1 x High Performance rotor cleaner/degreaser
1 x quick-change drill mount holder
4 x medium/course disc surface prep pads
- Use brake cleaner to remove all grease and dirt from rotor surfaces.
- Mount quick change holder and surface prep disc on hand drill.
- Using a light pressure on the drill and keeping it at a right angle to the rotor surface, you can start working your way around the rotor.
- Move the drill in small circles, moving counterclockwise around the rotor produces both the best surface finish and cleaned the fastest; if you see heavy "swirls" in the metal, you're likely applying too much pressure or you have something embedded that is making the swirls.
- You should be able to get an entire rotor (both sides) cleaned up with one pad. Keep repeating until you have a uniform silver/grey surface with faint scoring.
