1996 Chevrolet Blazer LT 6 Cyl 4.3L


vibration and noise in and around the front left tire area

14,953 miles. I recently had the brakes, tie rods, and arms replaced about a week ago. beginning two days ago I begin to hear a loud deep rumble noise in the location of the front right tire. this only accours when I brake and turn to the left, or press my brake half way. in addition I can feel a vibration thru the foot pedal. I called my mechanic and he kept the truck all day and could not locate the source of the problem. maybe there is something he over looked and can be corrected? or is this an issue not related to the recent replace parts I had done?

This diagnosis seems straightforward as typical of warped brake rotors - especially when the noise and sensation happens during braking.
The parts are readily available from these many on-line sources, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.discountautoparts.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.jcwhitney.com - to list only a few possibilities.
In fact, they (RockAuto) list the front brake rotors from around $19.00 each for your vehicle.
