I don't really brake hard or drive on the track. Its a manual car so I'm not riding the brakes. I got the car as a CPO car in 2009 and for 2 years I didn't have any problems like this. Then about 1 year ago the factory brakes developed judder when lightly braking above 60mph with about 4mm left on the pads. I also get a vibration when driving between about 65-80. The brakes were replaced and the judder when braking went away, but came back on the new brakes in a few months. The rotors were then resurfaced, but the same thing happened again within a couple months.

The vibration when driving never really went away when changing the brakes or resurfacing the rotors and has been there over more than one set of tires and multiple balancing attempts.

So I'm trying to decide what to do. I suspect there is something underlying this problem, but am unsure how to figure it out. I guess I was trying to see if maybe a caliper was sticking by using the temp gun.
