Question about 2006 Ford F-150

1 Answer

Apply brakes and rear wheels feel as if they became square and highly out of balance. They continue to feel that way for about another mile or so without pressure being applied to the brakes.

Are the rear rotors rusty?
Next check for stuck caliper ... the lug nuts and or rim will be hot after driving a few miles (and using brakes normally) you may notice blackening on your rim

Recently I have noticed that when I apply brakes at a speed of 50 and above I feel at the brake pedal a grinding feeling and car slightly pulls to a side . This car is my Audi A4 Quattro, Y registration....


When you get a vibration at high speeds when you hit the brakes the rotor/s are very slightly warped. Depending on miles, you may be able to get them turned / surfaced. One other thing is if you don't drive it to much, they can rust and cause the same problem. Hitting the brakes a few times on the highway will smooth them out.

Newly installed brake rotors and pads. balanced wheels, but still shakes when brakes are applied. I can also feel the shaking on the steering wheel when driving on rough road.


Apply the emergency brake slightly while driving to see if the rear brakes are the issue. Other wise the rotors are warped or there is debris behind the rotor to hub surface

When i hit the brakes or go over 60 miles the wheels will start to shake


It sounds like you may have more than one problem here. First I would investigate Front End Alignment and ALL Steering/Suspension components for excessive wear and/or looseness. Second I would Inspect the Brake Rotors and Pads for uneven wear. Third I would check the Tires for uneven wear and balance. Many things can cause these symptoms: Worn out Ball Joints, defective Shock Absorbers/Struts. Worn out Tie Rod Ends, Idler Arm, even the Steering Gear Box can be part of the problem. Brake Rotors and Tires can be out of Balance with either one causing the problem over 60 MPH. I strongly suggest having your vehicle inspected by an ASE Certified Front End and Brake specialist immediately. It is very dangerous to drive a vehicle with these symptoms.

My GX470 IS JERKING. The kind of feeling when wheels aren't balanced. Have done balancing and nothing changed. It happens whether brakes are applied or not.what else do I have to do.


make sure they were balanced correctly. the big lexus SUVs are very sensitive to the balance of the wheels. alot of tire shops use what is called smart balance, it rounds off the amount of wheel weights to make balancing faster. its great on most cars but on luxury cars it doesnt work as well. also make sure they roadforce the wheels. however unlikely it is that wheels with that large a sidewall will have high roadforce it is still possible.

Pulsating in the brake pedal is normally an indication of ABS problems or master cylinder problems. A quick check after a short trip may isolate this further. drive the vehicle about 1 or 2 miles, preferably on a highway, then get out and feel for heat from the tires one at a time. Be careful not to touch the hot areas of the wheels. If you feel more heat coming from one tire than the others then the Caliper may be sticking causing the problem. You also need to check your read brakes this way as well as they could also cause this problem if they are sticking.

Vibrating proplem


Your car has front disc brakes, the disc's are running out of true, as u apply the brake this causes the steering wheel to shake, the higher the speed the more u feel this, the solution is to have the front brake disc's machined true again on a brake lathe or if they are to thin replace them.

Noise and vibration above 50 mph


Sounds like front differential or front drive axle issues. Check the front differential gear oil then take er' to the dealership before you end up spending a bunch of $. Most people change their oil frequently in the engine but forget about flushing the transmission fluid and changing oil in the front and rear differentials. I have three Ford 4X4s. Two which really get used hard. The 93 has 311K miles and still runs excellent. Trans and differentials get a fluid change every 25K miles and moble one synthetic engine oil changes every 5k miles.

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.
