Lateral runout is a growing concern for brake service providers as many OEM brake systems have dramatically reduced this tolerance over the last decade. If a vehicle is serviced and their system is not returned to specification it will generate disc thickness variations as the pads contact the rotor surface with every revolution. Disc thickness variations are the genesis of a condition commonly referred to as “Warped Rotors”.
The effective solution
The revolutionary Brake Align™ Runout Correction Plates provide the simplest, least costly and most effective solution to correcting excessive lateral runout. Lateral runout can be measured, with a dial indicator, and can be corrected in less than five minutes per wheel. With two taper sizes available, Brake Align™ allows for runout up to .009 over specification to be corrected without the need for a costly wheel hub bearing replacement or the use of an On-The-Car Brake Lathe. Most importantly, the use of Brake Align™ does not involve cutting a new rotor which can affect the integrity of the rotor and surface condition.
