SOURCE: 2004 impala vibration when pressing brakes

hi sounds like a brake pulsation remove the brake rotors and make sure the hub face is clean of rust and the inside of the rotor reassemble the brakes and torque the wheel nuts to 100ft/lbs if it still pulsates then the rotor is warped some aftermarket rotors are warped from sitting on the shelf you can also check the laterial run out of the rotor with a dial indicator if you have one hope this helps

SOURCE: 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.

I would certainly check the wheel hubs, the main bearings are in them. Also, struts or shocks could be bad or you maybe needing a front end alignment.

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.

350z Rotors need to be cut at only 10K miles


Your rotors should be fine but it also depends on who turned the rotors and how they were done.Considering the dealer replaced the pads they probably used a metallic pad which have been known to be a noisy .Id suggest you have a repair shop resurface your rotors again and install some ceramic brake pads.
