The problem could very well be that you have warped rotors, this tends to happen on the more inexpensive rotors when they suddenly cool down after having warmed up. (so you hit a puddle after braking for example this can happen)

I had to replace all four rotors after a similar incident. However rotors are only one component which could have something to do with this, if you find your car pulls to one side, or your front end vibrates and you don't just feel the vibration through your brake pedal then you could have issues with your alignment, wheel bearings, or suspension this is where things get more tricky and should be checked out by a mechanic on a hoist.

If you feel your able to check this yourself without a mechanic. You can put your car on a jack on either side, and see if your wheel shakes from side to side (so push the wheel in and pull it out. BUT PLEASE be careful as most jacks aren't good for this kind of testing so that is why i recommend a hoist and mechanic).

You can see if your suspension is giving you trouble by looking for leaks in the struts or pushing down on every corner of the car and see if the strut makes a hissing noise while it recovers (usually means a bad strut) another thing you can do is see if you can see the strut when the car is on a jack and look for liquid leaking from it.

In general a mechanic should be able to perform all these tests within 30-60 minutes and that should give you a good idea where the problem is. In my experience Rotors (cheap) - Struts (cheap but installation is pricey) - Wheelbearings (cheapish as long as you buy the chinese aftermarket abs wheelbearing assembly) - Wheel Alignment (inexpensive compared all of the rest)...

I hope this helped.

Truck shakes when brake is applied upon slowing down it gets shakier until i let off the brake and pulse the brakes till truck stops


A common cause for the vibration when braking is when front brake pads are replaced, but the brake rotors were not resurfaced smooth. Overtime when braking, the new pad will wear into the rotor that was not cut. The uncut rotor, having high and low spots when turning, will cause the brake pedal to vibrate/pulse when stopping.

Front vibration when braking. replaced both calipers & pads. Any thoughts?


usually a front vibration during braking is a warped brake rotor. if it only vibrates from the front wheels during braking, it's bad brake rotors. brake rotors cost $23.00 each at auto zone auto parts stores. just confirmed that for you. thank you for choosing fixya.com

I would check the rear brakes drums, they may need to be turned. The front rotors may have warped again, with turning the rotors, it removes metal from the rotor which leaves the rotor with less metal to dissipate heat, and the rotor will warp again when they get hot.

1. vehicle vibrates while braking @ speed of 55mph+ 2. automatic window does not operate correctly


Hello: 1. You may have rotors that are not parallel, if you can fell the brake pedal trying to move up and down while you have the vibration then you need to get the rotors turned and also check the front pads while its apart. If the brake pedal is not moving when you have the vibration or the steering wheel is not shaking then it could be the back rotors (if you have 4 wheel disc brakes). If its the driver window that does not go down automatically you may have a bad switch.

Brake pad and rotor problems creating an on-going noise and vibration. Pads in front and back have been replaced;also rotors have been ground.


you need to replace the rotors.On new vehicles the manufacturer designed the rotors along with other parts to be replaced at certain mileage or ware.When they ground the rotors they became thinner.So now when the brakes warm up the rotors are easier to warp,which is the problem your having now.
