Wnen ever i apply brakes at a stop sign it vibrate ot when i turn left it vibrates


If it tries pull the steering wheel back and forth, it is brake rotors. If it just vibrates threw the body and steering, it is the right side wheel bearing.

2005 Deville, when I'm braking of the highway my tires vibrate. Why is that?


The "tire" vibration is usually felt only in the front. This is caused by worn or warped brake rotors. The only correction to have the brakes serviced. Replacement of the pads and resurfacing or replacement of the rotors should correct the vibration.

check balance of tires; if ok, have rotors refinished or replaced; most likely warped rotors if you can feel it in the brake pedal when braking

Brake pedal vibration


Sounds like sticky caliper for one reason or another which has probably warped rotor(s). When that vibration occurs & you pull over to stop it, carefully touch rim to see if hot, or hotter than other side, which is a good indicator to tell you which one is sticking. Don't just change one though, do both.
that is provided it's just not a case of lubricating sliders etc, to get calipers moving freely.

FRONT LEFT SIDE BRAKE NOISE & BINDING


It may be caused by Disc Thickness Variation, which occurs when the pads brush the sides of an out of alignment rotor. Also, it could be that the rotors need to be resurfaced due to poor surface finish. I have also seen that when the brakes drag on the pads (DTV) that any pad dust will collect in the low spots and squeal after braking. I would recommend dropping the calipers and thoroughly cleaning the rotors and pads off with warm soapy water and a rag. I don't recommend brake cleaner or silencing sprays because they just add un-needed material to a contact surface and can actually cause noise and prevent full pad contact.

See HERE for troubleshooting information from English Brake Corp.

See HERE for Tech Questions answered from Bendix Corp.

I can also suggest checking the hub face with a roller-tipped dial indicator gauge to confirm that it doesn't have any lateral run-out. Run-out of over .002" would be out of spec.

HOPE THIS HELPS!!! Please don't forget to rate!
