Brake shudder is caused by thcikness variation of the rotor surface. I would have the rotors machined on the car so they are perfect to your wheel spindle.
The grabbing could be due to low quality brake pads. Use Ford OEM or Motorcraft Value pads.

Breaks on Saab 2001


Did you replace the front and rear or just the front? Rear brakes can make the pulsation as well. Also if your ABS system is activating that could be described as a "pulsation". The ABS problem is usually caused by a bad wheel speed sensor or ABS module failure. ABS modules can be rebuilt (see ebay BBA-Reman) Wheel speed sensors are available at most auto parts stores. Some Saabs require the replacement of the whole hub assembly.

Brakes seem to stick.


If you have rear drum brakes then a brake shoe could have come apart causing the wheel to grab and skid on the pavement. If you can see external signs of dark wet areas that would be a leaking brake cylinder which can also cause the brakes to grab. The other possibiity, more common with disc brakes, is that a brake calliper is closing, but is not releasing properly when you let off the brake pedal. This would require replacement of the disc caliper on the wheel where it is grabbing.
Warped rotors can also cause the brake to "grab" when you don't want them to, but generally it will grab and release with a "pulsating' feeling if that's the problem.

HAVE A "GROWLING" SOUND FROM THE FRONT LEFT WHEEL, BREAKS ARE PULSATING. WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM


the brake pads are worn to nothing so you have a metal to metal contact making that noise. the brake rotor will be considered junk as well since it is very noisy

I have a Suzuki forenza 2004 and it has been nothing but trouble for me. I recently took my car to Michales tires, to purchase a new set of tires and they told me my Front Strut Mounts were bad, and that...


Get a third opinion. I don't see how the Suzuki dealer person could diagnose a problem from a phone call.

Take off a wheel and see how much brake pad you have left. The pulsating sounds like the rotors need resurfacing. Replacing pads and resurfacting rotors shouldn't be a major expenditure.

Front brakes are grabbing


If it is a pulsating feeling (front brake pedal shakes when braking) it needs new rotors.

I have a vibration when breaking in my nissan titan,how do i fix this


If you are mean that only when you put on the brakes you feel a vibration from the steering wheel. Then you need to make sure your front end is tight, or the break rotors are warped which is most likely the case but you should also feel a pulsation in the brake pedal two. You can jack up the front tires grab the tire from top to bottom then do the same from side to side you should notice if there is excessive amount of play, or movement, if not you probbaly just have warped brake rotors that you can have machined or replaced.

Pulsates when starts then shuts down after warmed up


Check all of your connections at the coil pack. Ensure that the coil packs do not have any corrosion under them were they connect into the base module or any of the connections, even plug wires. I had this same problem with my 2.2 in a 99' s-10. Pulled the coil apart, cleaned it up and and put di-electric grease on it, all better.

Brakes pulsate real hard


That is just the ABS system at work. It is supposed to prevent your wheels from locking which often makes the brake pulsate, especially in wet weather or or snow or ice. The only way to really stop this is to disable to ABS by unplugging it and removing the fuse. This will make the ABS light appear in your dash, but your brakes will stop pulsating.
