I inherited the car with the "warping" issue. And I apologize for the misspelling my overly sympathetic friend, it's 1am here and I've just gotten done with work (on a business trip, not home). I was told that it was "warped" rotors when I got the car so that's what I reported the problem as, as I had no idea. Also RIF == RTFM, but I suppose that's a less kind way of putting it. & I appreciate your response despite its caddish nature. I'll be sure to do more research in the future.
Post fixed for your pleasure.

Dreaming of the ///M.
