    One question:



    Do you drive fast with a lot of high speed braking? Meaning, do you wait to the last second to step on the brakes....like when coming off of the highway or from one stop light to the next, stopping on the brakes fast?

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.

Steering wheel shakes at high speed when brakes are applied


This is caused by the front disk brake rotors being warped from heat and running out of true, the wobble of the warped rotors causes the wheel to shake when you apply the brakes, it is worse the higher the speed you apply them at. Have the front rotors machined flat again or just replace them.

Last November I had my winter tires installed and they did some front brake work. After that there was a vibration in the front end that felt like the tires were out of balance even though the invoice...


If the vibration is only there when you apply the brakes, the front brake rotor's could be wrap, and need to be turned or replaced, also have them check the hardware to the brake caliper's, that's the part where the brake pads fit on, to make sure there lube, and the brake caliper slide easy, that will also give you vibration.

07 camry brakes clatters when brakes apply, Can you help with the fix??


If you are saying the brakes chatter or there is a vibration when applying the brakes your rotors are warped. Remove the pads, have the rotors turned at a machine shop, and replace the pads with new ones, even if they look good. Warped rotors are caused by excessive braking at high speed, riding the brake pedal, or not correctly torquing the lug nuts to the correct lb/ft when installing the tire/wheel. Your owner's manual will list the correct torque which will be around 80 lb/ft. Make sure anyone removing a wheel use a torque wrench and torque them correctly.
