Sounds like your rotors are warped or "out of round". Are they new or have they been cut/turned at last brake job and reused? This can cause the rotors to get excessively hot and warp when braking.

Also, calipers could be freezing up and making the pads contact the rotors un-noticed as you drive. Slowly leading to warped rotors.

Have a mechanic do a brake check.

The roiors are "warped" you could have them machined but the problem will come back and be worse due to thinner rotors. replace with new rotors.
and high quality brake pads. recomend the ceramic ones they are way more exspensive but last way longer, make less dust and noise and are able to better handle the heat produced by your driving situation. heat from exessive usage is what causes rotor warpage

Rear brakes dragging


Normally I would say check the brake hose, but that would only be for one wheel.
If the rear brakes are not releasing normally, either something is keeping pressure applied, or the calipers are not sliding back. If both inner and outer pads are wearing down equally on both wheels, I would look for a pressure problem. If only the outboard pads are wearing, the calipers are sticking in place.

Front brake rotors are warped, time to do a brakes job, make sure calipers float on pins and that you replace rotors, aftermarket are cheaper than G.M. but hold up just as well, change pads and lube the slides in calipers

What causes the front brakes to pulsate on a ford f-350 super duty


just because the rotors are new dosen't mean they come out of the box 100%,you might have one that is running out,causing the pulse,most pften it is recommended to have them turned on a brake lathe prior installation (saves you the trouble of doing the job twice)

I feel a vibrating/pulsating feel in the whole truck when the brakes are applied. I have changed the front wheel bearings, rotors, brakes and calipers. Also had the rear calipers checked which were still...


Rear disk need turning, did you turn new roters when you replace them on the front I always did and found most new roters are not true. If it isn't a roter problem check front end parts for looseness such as idler arm
