Default Warped Rotors?

Here lately I have noticed my truck bouncing up and down slightly when coming to a stop at lights. At first I thought it was the road, but no. Then thought warped rotors but second guess it because I'm not feeling it in the pedal and steering. The truck only has 18600 miles on it so I will not be turning the wrenches. Any thoughts or opinions?

if by bounce you mean it isn't a smooth stop it could be that. When your rotors are warped it seems like the pressure is off then on then off then on. Can feel it kind of rock when stopping. I don't see that being an issue at 18K though

I'd like to think it's something minor since the truck has so few miles on it. Since you're still under warranty, why not just take it to the dealer? Make them give you a loaner, too.

yeah, that is your best bet, just take it in and let them drive it around and see what they think.

That's more than likely what I'm gonna do. But like I said its not like any other warped rotor situation I've seen.

have them check your brakes and your tires, just to be safe....but if it was your tires it would be all the time so it could be the pads or rotors.
