Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I kind of feels the like the whole car is shaking, depends on how fast i'm going and how hard I brake.

ok if you have a dial indicator I would suggest doing a run out on the brake rotors and the actual hub its of these items is not flush. now you secured the set screws in the rotors also ?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
ok I will try to get access to a dial indicator and check them. I am going to change the rear rotors and pad this weekend. I should know Saturday if my vibration is gone. will let you know.

ok sounds like a plan.

this was the reason I was asking about the vibration in the seat and floor. typically when the vibration is in the seat and floor it's normally the rear rotors
