Front Brake Problems- 98 Burb 2500 4x4
I have been having problems on my burb's front brakes for a while now. I had it diagnosed at a shop and they said that my rotors were wobbling on the lug studs. So I replaced the rotors, studs, and pads myself to save the grand. When I put on the new rotors, it seems like they are too small. They still wobble on the studs a little bit. There is space between the exterior plate attached to the hub and the rotor. I can push and pull the rotors about an 1/8 inch. Is that standard? Is there possibly something else wrong here?
I really feel the front end shake after being up to speed on the freeway and need to come to a stop, the front end shakes uncontrollably. I have been told my pitman arm may need replacing also, however I don't see that as the complete cause to my problem.
The rotors I purchased can be found here:
Thanks for the help!

jack one side of your front tire up at a time move your wheel side to side to see how much play you have look underneath to see if your pitman arm has slack in it or if it is in the tie rod ends. then to check your ball joints get a big pry bar lift up on it to see if there is any play should not be any play in none of it.
