HI if you have pulsation after a month you must replace the rotors
they are too thin and the heat is warping them faster then before you
had them turned
note you replace brake pads and rotors

good luck

I have a 2005 Toyota Tundra - the front end vibrates when turning. What's causing this?


When was the last time you balanced and rotated tires,it's recommended to do it every 6000 miles,Sam's club does it for 15 or if you bought tires from there then it's free.Make sure lug nuts are tight.

New brakes squeaking


Poor quality brake pads or improper machining of the brake rotors is the common cause. Use factory OEM disk pads from the dealer, not the cheapest thing out there to avoid this type of problem with noise. Note the noise doesn't affect braking...

Vibration in front end of Chevy Trailblazer 4x4


Does the shake match tire rotation or drive shaft rotation speed? If it's at tire rotation speed,have the new tires been dynamically balanced on a brand name motorized balancer?Re balance them that way.If a wheel weight has come off you will have a shake.You can also rotate the tires from front to back and see if that helps.Also,brake rotors can be out of balance and even with a perfectly balanced tire,the rotor can throw the balance off.

How to replace front discs and pads


Front brakes are very simple to do:
  • Pull off the front tires.
  • Remove the brake pads by removing the slide pin bolts where the piston assembly attaches to the caliper mounting bracket. The slide pin bolts are usually a 12 or 14mm bolt. Once the piston assembly is free slide the old brake pads out.
  • Compress the piston back into the caliper by using a large pair of channel lock pliers or a c-clamp. If you don't do this, you won't be able to get the new pads on.
  • Before you put the new pads on, replace the rotor.
  • Remove the two bolts for the caliper mounting bracket. They are in the back and are bigger than the slide pin bolts. Usually a 17 or 19mm bolt.
  • Pull off the caliper mounting bracket.
  • At this point the old rotor should slide right off. If it doesn't slide right off, look for a screw in the center of the rotor, some cars will have a screw there to hold the rotor on. If there's no screw and it still won't come off, try tapping it with a hammer. If you're replacing the rotor, don't be shy.
  • Put the new rotor on. Make sure to clean off any grease with brake cleaner that may be on the braking surface from packaging.
  • Put the caliper mounting bracket back on.
  • Put the new brake pads on. Make sure to use some anti-squeal grease on the back of the pads.
  • Put the caliper assembly back on with the slide pins. Grease up the slide pins as well.
  • Put the wheels back on.
  • Make sure to pump your brakes 10 - 15 times before you drive off. Because you compressed the piston back into the caliper, the piston will not be contacting the brake pads unless you pump the brakes.

Good Luck!

My 2003 Lincoln had new brakes and rotors 6 months ago - now, i notice a squeek when I apply the brakes - also, on snow when lightly braking, my brake pedal pushes itself against my foot in an up and down...


if you had brakes and rotors 6 months ago,did you do just front or just rear?
if you did front and squeal is in front,the new pads got hot and it glazed them,but the rotors are you pulsating pedal,are you sure they did rotors and pads?
there is no way this should be happening in 6 months.

While driving my 2004 pontiac grand prix, my service brake indicator came on. I recently had my brakes checked and was told that pads and rotors were fine, but that within the next few month I would need...


At 80000 miles there is a very good chance that you are ready for new front pads. That is precisely what I tell my customers when I exchange brake pads. "Come and see me in about 80000 miles" The sensors will pick up on a fimly depressed brake pedal and then store it in the computer. This indicator is fed by two sources brake wear and milage. It's best to get them now before you end up needing rotors too! Thanks, Dana

Shaking while braking


If you put new rotors on and used the old pads that could be your problem. You never put new rotors on, with out new pads even when the old pads look new. Also just because the rotors are new does not mean thery are not warped. I have done a lot of break jobs where i have had to take the rotors back off and had them turned because they were warped right out of the box.

How to fix my 2000 toyota tundra brake prolem


Chatter is caused by brake pad vibration, they make a paste that you put on the back of the brake pads to reduce it or make it go away, another thing that causes it is the rotors were no finished properly when they were turned, another issue is poor quality brake pads, I have always used Wagner or Raybestos brand they are the best and have anti squeak/chatter materials in the pad material.
