  • What's Holding Up Your Car?

    Mar 25, 2013

    Saturday was my day for making repairs on my car, and I'd been having problems with my old, rusty brake rotors. Every time I'd hit the brakes, the steering wheel would vibrate. I wanted to put an end to that, so I bought some good slotted and drilled replacement rotors. I gathered all the tools I needed - including a jack, wrenches, sockets and screwdrivers - and went to my garage to get started. I'd changed rotors on several cars in the past, so I basically knew how to do it.
