Use e-brake first and block wheels. raise vehicule of the ground. with an assistant, turn the steering wheel from one side to another half a turn quickly while one is looking at steering components like tie-rod ends. look for loose parts. look on both sides. it might also be the ball joints. lower the car enough to have the tires touching the ground enough and also give a good look at it. turn steering wheel again like before and watch for uneven movement. whichever looks abnormal will need to be changed on both sides

Why does it shake whenever i let off the gas and shakes real bad when i apply my brakes


If when applying the brakes the steering wheel shakes then your front rotors are warped and at the least need resurfaced and most likely the brake pads replaced. But more likely the rotors are too thin which has allowed them to overheat and warp which causes the shaking. In this case new rotors and pads are in order. If when braking tou feel the shaking in the seat of your pants then most likely the rear brakes are the issue. Same problem as the front, warpage, but your rear brakes are most likely drums. Again, possible resurfacing and new shoes; but more likely new drums and brake shoes.

But I wonder? Did this vibrating just start all of a sudden or maybe after a near accident requiring you to brake very heavily and possibly overheat the brakes. Or my main concern, to keep this from happening again, after pulling some type of trailer that you intend on pulling again. Pulling a trailer without its own brakes puts a much heavier load on your trucks brakes and just repairing them won't keep it from happening again if you ARE pulling a trailer. Higher quality rotors/pads/drums/ and brake shoes can help but if the trailer is too heavy for the truck nothing but installing brakes on the trailer or a lighter trailer will stop you from warping them again.

Lastly, in general when you let off the gas and the whole vehicle shakes the driveshaft/u-joints are common causes. Same with the steering wheel if it shakes when letting off the gas, but only on a 4x4 or AWD vehicle. So check your driveshafts and u-joints and make sure they are tight. But unless you find something obvious there I would wait until you have the brakes sorted out and see if that doesn't stop all the shaking.

Good luck!

Steering wheel shake when braking


The usual cause for this is because the brake rotors on your Stratus have warped slightly. In the old days, it was easy enough to simply change the brake pads and then have the rotors "turned" (machined) so they turn true. Nowadays, finding a place to have your rotors machined isn't all that easy, though you may just get lucky. It's usually around $10/rotor. Replacing the rotors sometimes seems to be the only option. You'll be able to find them at Advance Auto Parts, Auto Zone, etc., and usually run around $30/each. Of course, while you have the brake calipers removed to remove the rotors, you may want to go ahead and put a new set of brake pads on there as well. You'll notice an immediate difference in braking once you get back on the road, without all that incessive shaking to a stop!

I hope this helps! :)

Brakesa are jumping when brakes are applied


i do believe you mean the service brakes, and when pushing the brake pedal the truck shakes?

Pad transfer will cause uneven brake discs with humps on em. Every time you then step on the brake pedal you'll feel the pads going over the humps, causing the shakes.

The best way to get rid of this is to replace the disc brakes with new discs.
Remember to change the pads too.

Front end shakes when braking


One or both of your new rotors probably have some run-out in them.Not entirely unusual to have warped rotors right out of the box.I would check this before considering other things. machine rotors....good luck

Shake/Shudder while depressing the brake.


I just changed the brake pads and rotors on my father's 2001 Trooper that he recently purchased because they were shaking just like your were.  He bought it from a mechanic shop and they had put new pads on it but it needed new rotors as well.  If there is noticable groving on the rotors and new pads are installed it can create shaking, sometimes severe, when the brakes are applied.  It sounds like this is what has happened with your vehicle as well.  That being said, I don't consider it a huge safety issue to drive it until you get it fixed, just know that your braking will not be optimal and that it will take you longer to stop than if the brakes were working properly.  All that being said, get them fixed ASAP so you don't have to worry about it.  Who wants to mess with safety right?  Good luck, hope this helps!
