Both solutions are correct.  In the future, be careful about driving through standing water (rain runoff).  If the rotors are hot (from normal use) and are then doused with water, they can warp, causing the vibration you feel when applying the brakes.  Warped routers can cause inconsistent braking on one side or the other, which can be dangerous.

SM124 is correct. I would machine both at the same time so that they are in equivalent shape - same with replacement. They should be close to the same condition anyway.

I would also consider if it only happens when the brakes heat up. I read that the rotors for these vehicles warp easily and when mine warm up, they throb (not ABS BTW). When cold they are smooth.

Sounds like the right side rotor is out of round.Either have it machined or replaced. Also when checking the rotor make sure the steering linkage is good at the tierod ends. You should probably have both rotors serviced at the same time

The front end of my 92honda prelude is shaking and trying to pull hard to the left only when i apply the brakes but when Im not applying the brakes it pulls very little to the right. What would be making...


You need to replace the brake Pads, Turn the Rotors and probably replace the caliper on one of those sides. Either the right side isn't grabbing correctly or the left side is grabbing too much. Test the mater Cylinder for a possible blockage and make sure you bleed both calipers before you start replacing parts.

Shake/Shudder while depressing the brake.


I just changed the brake pads and rotors on my father's 2001 Trooper that he recently purchased because they were shaking just like your were.  He bought it from a mechanic shop and they had put new pads on it but it needed new rotors as well.  If there is noticable groving on the rotors and new pads are installed it can create shaking, sometimes severe, when the brakes are applied.  It sounds like this is what has happened with your vehicle as well.  That being said, I don't consider it a huge safety issue to drive it until you get it fixed, just know that your braking will not be optimal and that it will take you longer to stop than if the brakes were working properly.  All that being said, get them fixed ASAP so you don't have to worry about it.  Who wants to mess with safety right?  Good luck, hope this helps!

Shake in steering wheel


I believe you need your disk brake rotors turned to be true again or have them replaced. Whe you use your brakes a lot and kit puddles of cold water then it will warp the rotors which will cause the violent shaking. You may not feel it in the brake pedal even if it is warped rotors. If you don't think you have warped rotors then you should be very careful driving it because it will probably be in the steering sector arm or the idler arm on the steering shaft.

Vehicle shakes


I doubt it. You'd have an ABS light on. All wheel are warm to scalding hot after even light driving. ABS systems do not apply brakes. They unapply them. They simply cut the fluid to one of the wheels / axle sets of brakes. (Newer stability control systems use the brakes) In your case. The ABS can deactivate either front wheel independantly, or the both the rear brakes together. You can take the wheel off & flip the pad & piston up to check it if you want, but I wouldn't think it was the brake dragging at the top of my list, no.
