Default Brembo sti upgrade I really need a hand

Ok heres the deal I run the Brembo Sti kit on an 02 wrx bought it through a reputable brembo rep in my are and things were great for a few months. Reasonable driving no track use just spirited street driving. I am getting feedback like they are warped. It shakes the steering wheel hard under braking light or hard. I spoke with race technologies who are huge brembo reps and they suggested wheel bearings as a solution since the stock ones due to the added strain of the brakes go every 30000 so I suggested it to my subbaru dealership in buffalo who are ussually very good. They said that there isn't any wobble on my stock ones at all and the cost was horific. 2k or somthing for front and rear obviously not doing that right now. What do you guys recomend replacing the rotors and pads? I will tell you that I could see the winter being tough since they get hot and then get dipped into snow since the tires are low and the rims are open that could warp anything. What to do its driving me nuts!

There's a tech paper about warped rotors at stoptech. You should give it a read. You've probably got excess material on your rotors. If you had some pansy rotors, I might be inclined to think warped, but probably not with the sti brembo rotors. Sand or surface the rotors and re-bed the pads is what I'm thinking.

Did you bed the pads n rotors in when it was new?

Bedding is the process of breaking in or seasoning the rotors and pads for proper usage. The white paper describes the bedding particulars but there are instructions on their site too. You can also search for instructions here, but they may vary slightly depending on pad maker.
