The rotors are warped, need to replace them, also when the wheeles are put back on, the lug nuts need to be tourqued down to the specifications for that car, or the new rotors will warp again.

I have a 2008 equinox. after driving 20 mins in stop and go traffic, brake pedal becomes hard and can't move the car. Replaced master cyclinder, brake booster and brake pedal sensor. Help


Check the flexible brake lines on the front two wheels. The rubber inside can become swollen which will restrict the release of pressure when you let off the brakes. After a few brake applications, enough pressure will build up to keep the brakes applies to the front two wheels. It will also severely wear the front pads .

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.

Brakesa are jumping when brakes are applied


i do believe you mean the service brakes, and when pushing the brake pedal the truck shakes?

Pad transfer will cause uneven brake discs with humps on em. Every time you then step on the brake pedal you'll feel the pads going over the humps, causing the shakes.

The best way to get rid of this is to replace the disc brakes with new discs.
Remember to change the pads too.

2005 Equinox noise from front end/brakes


I had the same problem with mine at about 20000 miles,took it to dealer and they told me it was a common problem for the mounting bushing for the caliper to go bad.Dealer replaced them and less than 5000 miles later had same problem,they ordered new brackets with new bushings to mount calipers and have had no problems since at 41000 and still have original pads and rotors have not been turned. Don't know if they will do anything after warrantee but mounting bushings are easy to replace and not expensive.

When i apply my brakes on my 98 contour the front end shakes


Sounds like you have bad brake pads or rotors ..if you are not mechanical take them in somewhere ......if the brake pads are left too long the metal will wear away the rotors and then it all needs to be replaced....hopefully just the pads need replacing but it sounds like if it is shaking that bad rotors are gone too. usually the pads will make a sqeaking sound when the get to worn so you know that they need replacing.
