Is it still

I have a slight vibration in the front of my truck. Now sometimes it gets worse when I hit the brakes but only when I hit them very softly and if I hit them really hard it doesn't do it at all. It feels like warpped rotors but it doesn't happen all the time and it is constant (even when I'm not on the brakes) at about 60+ MPH. Now I'm thinking its got to either be my tires out of balance or wheel bearing as I had on wheel bearing exploded on me in the front and i replaced it but I don't know if the other wheel bearing needs to be replaced. It looked fine to me but maybe I missed something. I grease the hell of the wheel bearing and tighten to specs. This weekend I'm going to rotate me tires and see if that fixes it. If it does I'm going to have to bring the tires to get them balanced, but I wanted anyone input on things to look at when I take the tire off. I'm goign to recheck the torque specs on the wheel bearings and maybe tighten it up a bit.

tires balanced and rotation should be your first attempt to fix the problem...

yeah, I'm going to try and take care of that. I don't want it to be the rotor because those things are expensive to replace.

well its like $80 a piece. Not expensive but compared to that of my parents concorde which i which its just as cheap to repalce the rotors as pads. Plus the rotors are almost brand new. Probably one year on them.
