brake vibrations - but not the obvious problem I think

hey, I changed my rotors and pads on the front of my civic about 6 months ago, and a few weeks ago (maybe like 4-6) I started to get a vibration like my rotors were warped but different. It won't happen all the time, it doens't seem to happen when I first start off in the morning, and sometimes other times it will brake normally. so I am thinking its not warped rotors because its not all the time...

anybody got any ideas?

funny, I have the same issue on my EF. it happens only when I brake normal, when I brake light or hard it won't happen. pads and rotors are new and so are tires. I think it's the hardware for the caliper allowing it to **** slightly and chatter. check the sliders/pins for uneven wear?

Could be the slider pins just need to be greased up, this is a very common problem. I dunno, just a suggestion.

If you put a little silicone in the backing plate of the pad where it mates with the caliper that may solve your vibrating issues, however ask most mechanics and they will all tell you the same, honda civic rotors constantly go in and out of warp, especially on ef's.
