Do u feel the vibration in the steering wheel or in the seat,i bet the most vibration was coming out of the front brakes and a little out of the rear brakes,u might want to change the rear brakes if the vibration is still annoying,also were the front wheels torqued to spec when installed?? if not u might end up with warped front brakes again,hope this helped

Applying brakes causes a major vibration in Vehicle


This is kind of a long shot, but you've done all the logical things already. You didn't state what make, model, year so I don't know if this will apply or not. I had a 2002 Intrepid that did this (infrequently at first, but became more pronounced) when I was turning slightly while braking. It turned out to be the inner tie rod ends, where they connect to the steering rack and pinion. The bushings were badly worn, and you could feel this with the wheels off the ground.

2003 buick rendevous vibration


A proper front-end inspection would be needed to determine if indeed the vibration or shimmy you are having is from a loose/worn front-end components.It is not unheard of to received defective "new" rotors.

My car vibrate at 100-120km/hr i have bought new tires and done the wheel balncing but it still vibrate and whenever i tried to apply the break at this speed it vibrate serously. it's a 2001 mazda mpv


This is due to poor settings of the wheel bearings,tyres,- check balancing once again, wheel drums/ brake pads,suspension , joints and steering.
In all the entire front suspension must be checked, the WHELL ALIGNMENT must be checked with precision and each of the wheels must be checked for damage on hub, axle or chassis.

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.

Replaced the right front wheel bearing after pulling the old one it was bad, Tire store said it was not the tires that was causing the virbration, replaced pads and rotors now the virbration feels like...


Could be the inner cup of the cv shaft or the carrier bearing if your vehicle has a halfshaft before the cv axle. If your getting pedal pulsation it must be a bad rotor. Now it should only do it when brakes are applied. Ive seen cases where the pads are very new and the rotor is so warped it will pulsate abd vibrate even withouth applying brakes. Other possobilty is that spindle was damaged and warped/ bent while pressing in new hub bearing.
