IT appears that only half of the master cylinder has bled properly. Try loosing the pipe nuts at the m/cyl and gently pump the pedal until you get fluid out of both lines. Then re-bleed the system starting at the longest line first ending at the shortest. Some master cylinders have a plunger fitted in the middle of the cylinder and this is there to still have brakes if a line fails. It may be necessary to remove it an plug the hole temporarily while you bleed the system as to stops one piston in the cylinder from moving and allowing proper bleeding

SOURCE: 2005 Equinox steering wheel shakes when applying

have the rotors machined, shaking when braking is an indication of a warped rotor or drum, even though it may look ok, the rotor can still be warped, it would be a good idea to have the rotors/drums machined and new pads installed if the old ones are 4-5/32'nds or lower. that should take care of your shaking when braking issue

Applying brakes causes a major vibration in Vehicle


This is kind of a long shot, but you've done all the logical things already. You didn't state what make, model, year so I don't know if this will apply or not. I had a 2002 Intrepid that did this (infrequently at first, but became more pronounced) when I was turning slightly while braking. It turned out to be the inner tie rod ends, where they connect to the steering rack and pinion. The bushings were badly worn, and you could feel this with the wheels off the ground.

Chevy uplander traction control seems to be working all the time


Can you feel the vibration through the steering wheel if so have your front discs machined & the front pads replaced. Or are you feeling the vibration through the pedal? if so it may be the rear but start with the front.

Vibration at 70 MPH.


Warped or out-of balance brake rotor? Also keep in mind that loose rear differential trailing arms that allow the rear differential to squirm around can also cause steering wheel shake.

Front wheels and steering wheel shake while driving


If you get a bad vibration in your steering wheel at low speeds without braking it is either a bad tire or a bad rim. If you get a vibration at speeds around 45-50+ and goes away you probably have a balance issue. If the vibration only occurs while braking then your rotors are warped. If low speeds it shakes i'd take it to a shop to check your tires.

My Chevy 2002 Tahoe is leaking oil. They told me


this truck is equipped with an aluminum oil pan you could have 1 or several things going on... a stripped drain plug which is causing it to leak or it may be a leaking front seal or a rear main seal. If it is a front seal it is not to labor intensive. But if it is a rear main seal leaking it will require the transmission to be removed since the seal is a 1 piece rear main

When the brakes are applied thereis a vibration , and some noise. IT is not severe unless it becomes necessary to brake really hard in which case it causes the steering wheel to vibrate. It has been to a...


If the brakes are fine, try rotating the wheels.
The tires it self could have a bad belt in it and have a soft spot. Try putting the front tires to the rear and the rear to the front, double check the tire pressure and see if the vibration go's away.
If the vibration is still there then the tires are good and it's the brake rotor or worn steering parts and or needs a wheel alignment. As the front end drops the toe-in changes geometry and may just be out enough to cause the wheels to vibrate.
Good luck and hope this help. I fine the brake rotors inexpensive enough at a parts store that it's better to change them rater then have then turned to a smooth surface again. If your handy try changing the rotors with new one's. Auto Zone has the parts and would give the step by step instructions to do the job.

Vibration and noise from front end while driving


Jack up the front end and put stands under it and block rear wheels. Look at axle boots and see if they are cracked. Try turning wheel back and forth sharply and see if you can hear any clicking. Problem could be outer axle joints. If the boots are cracked or you hear a clicking noise you will have to replace the axle. The axle and boot come as a complete unit. Please let me know what you find out.
