Warped rotors

Today I was going to replace the front rotors and pads. Being cursed with abundant curiosity and frugality combined with a tool fetish, I picked up a dial indicator.

So I took off the tires. but two lug nuts back on and lightly snugged them up. Installed my new toy, and found the right to be 5 lines (I assume to be .001 inch per line, but no owner manual so I don't know) of movement, the left was better 2-3 lines of movement.

Doesn't seem to be warped to me.

I have a steering wheel shake when braking, just had dealership replace lower ball joint, idler arm (both pieces), pitman arm, and steering sector. Pretty certain if any tie rod ends were bad they would have sold me that too. I have pushed and pulled on the tie rod ends and can't see an issue. Mr. Google said warped rotors, but with parts on the bench and seeing these numbers I am wondering if I am throwing money away.

Will someone weigh in on whether the .005 is serious warp or am I missing something. Thanks

5 thousands is nothing. Rust or some debris between the hub and rotor can do that.

I'd check the rears too. They warped first on my truck. And my steering shook along with the rest of the truck.

If your in need of new pads like you mentioned new rotors are put on. I’ve never put on new pads without installing new rotors. I don’t even look for thickness or warping. Good for another 200,000 miles

Thanks guys, I put all the lug nuts on the side with .005 and it improved to .002-.003 so I opted to return the rotors and pads, My pads are still like 60%. I will look into the rear as the stealership mentioned a hanging caliper in the rear, of course they also said warped rotors, but I may have put that thought in their head. Lol, I have to quit suggesting things they can sell me. I have been fighting sticking calipers as I use CRC caliper grease that was black & sticky, made all the rubber parts sticky. I have since learned the magic of smurf jizz.

Smurfs jizz is disc brake quiet...blue adhesive applied to pad backing plates to quell squealing.
Since I use the OEM ceramic pads, I've never had to use "disc brake quiet" on the pad backing plates.

smurf jizz

thanks for reply on smurf jizz, I do not think it will work in place of brake grease on slides and pins , might bind it up a little!
Thanks again

my understanding it is the silicon based lube on the pins that is not damaged by the heat, other lubes react with the rubber, get sticky and makes caliper hang up. Been down that road, ick. Maybe I have my redneck label wrong....
