    i had the same problem so upgraded my disks/rotors to EBC drilled slotted ones and also replaced the pads, and it still continued its worth having the rotors checked first but dont go buyin new ones straight away unless there definatly sure it is, (get them to replace them if they say it is but get them to sign a bit of paper to say they will buy them back if it isn't, otherwise its a waste of money)

I turn them on a brake lathe in my shop whenever I change brake pads for customers. Heavy repeated braking will make em warp and vibrate like that. also changing the pads without turning them on a lathe will often leave them warped. Usually caused by either overheating during heavy braking effort or very commonly, using too heavy an impact wrench to tighten the lug nuts up. Did u get your tires changed recently? if so, dont go there again. their impact wrench is not set right and is likely overtightening the lug nuts.
Get a local garage/NAPA to turn the rotors and replace the pads. If the vibration is very severe you will have to replace the rotors.
Hope this helps if so pls rate my answer!

94 jeep grand cherokee front end vibration


Many things will cause vibrations, especially on 4WD trucks. Causes include: worn ball joints, worn tie rod ends, bent wheels, tires out of balance/shifted belt in tire, worn steering dampener, worn u-joints, worn CV joints, engine problems such as engine misfire, a bad fuel injector clogged fuel filter or injectors, worn ignition parts, etc. I suggest you apply the service brake in gear and give it a lot of throttle (power-brake)to determine if the engine is running smoothly or if it runs rough. Also, with the hood up, you can see the shaking if it occurs. If rough, check everything over and repair as necessary. If smooth, start checking ALL other vehicle systems and repair as necessary.

ok have ever had the breakes changed before or is there any squeling or grinding thats your brake pads are bad. as far as the whole brake system being replace thats ********* that mechanic is looking for a big bonus. im leaning towards a stuck or sticking calipar would cause it as well as if there is are in the system and will need to be bleed out. no if the roter's are warped u will know it cause the whole front end will shake when step on the brakes but only when u use the brakes. if you can see the brake roter's run your finger tip accros them they should be smooth with no groves or rigges if they have them the pads are bad as well as the roters and will need to be replaced, and a abs secner would kick in the abs. all in all i would take it to a shop u trust.

Okay....hope this helps......

#1-Front end squeek is coming from a bushing in the front end suspension....could be the rubber on your struts/schocks, balljoint, or tie rod bushings. Have to jack the car front end and start from one side to the other...a little bit of a pain to pin point.

#2-The fan selector switch is bad....which means the control panel has to be replaced.

#3-Brakes....couple of things.....brake pads may have been installed incorrectly...not seated correctly in the caliper....

Have you hit anything recently or run over a parking block or run over a curb???

Ford Escape Breaks


Did you replace them yourself or did you take them to a "qualified brake specialist"? It sounds like your brake lines need to be bled properly. You may also have one or more calipers sticking to cause the vibration.
