If it pulsates only when applying the brakes, you have warped rotors.

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.

1995 suburban the whole truck shakes when i apply the brakes and the pedal seems to pulse as it slows to a stop. I have changed the front pads calipers and rotors. no change ?


Now, did the mechanic even suggested anything about MACHiNiNG ur ROTOR brake disc before putting those brake pads? U got UNEVEN brake disc and needs MACHiNiNG to equally level the pads grip to the rotor! Do it i'm very sure of it! Taaah!

When i apply my brakes the truck wants to bounce,shake,vibrate,what all could be the problem?


The vibrate and shake can be caused by warpped rotors. If the brakes have high mileage, it's probabply time for new brake pads and rotors.

Steering whell shimmies when brakes are applied


A common problem with brakes are the rotors warping,which causes a vibration when applying the brake pedal.The brake pads,clamp down on the brake rotor,which slows the vehicle,and in the process,both items are subjected to very high temperatures.This is what causes the rotors to warp,which in turn creates the vibration you feel.Best solution is to replace the rotors and pads,with new.The calipers,which hold the brake pads,should be checked by the technician to make sure the piston is working properly,and not leaking.The rubber hoses should also be checked,no cracks or leaks,etc.Good luck.

Honda Odessey 2002 - Rotor brake


Yes, depending on the quality of the rotor, in extreme conditions it can rust out quicker. The brake pad graps the rotor, 'cleaning' it as it stops the vehicle. If the vehicle sits for a long period of time then it is more likely to accumulate rust. If a rotor gets out of balance, (this is what causes your vibration) it needs to be remachined. The rotor can only be machined so many times before it is too thin to use. The rear rotor must be thinner than the front rotor. Since this is a vital part of your brake system, it's money well spent to help insure your safety.
