Question about 1992 Dodge Dakota

Open Question

When I apply the brakes, the truck shakes pretty bad about 80% of the time. I'm pretty sure its not the breaks. Anyone have any suggestions?

SOURCE: shaking brakes

Your rotors are warped. You also probably need to brake pads. Take your rotors off and inspect them for cuts and grooves. If the surface is not flat you'll need new ones. If not take them to a machine shop and have them turned. Turning your rotors will cut them down until the surface is perfectly flat and not warped. The shaking is cause when the rotors are warped and you press the brakes and the rotor applies more pressure where it's high and less where it's low, thus causes it to shake

SOURCE: 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.

Steering shakes at low and high speeds and pulls to the right

If it only does it when you are using the brakes, I would check the brakes on both sides.
If it does it without using the brakes, I would look for a bad tire on the front. One of the tires could have a broken belt inside the tread.
Could also be a bad wheel bearing on the front.

My Toyota RAV4 shakes when I apply brakes, especiall going downhill. Do they need to be replaced?

More than likely it's time to replace .Usually if the pedal shakes hard while breaking that signifies that the rotor is bad.Sounds to me as if you will be replacing breaks and rotors.

My car is shaky every time i hit a stop light?

you should keep all four tires on the ground !!!! LOL ! your rotors or brake pads are bad. do you feel it shake in the steering wheel ? Check these three items and im sure it will fix.......1) jack front car up and try to move front tires in all directions, does it feel loose at all? if yes check tie rod ends, upper and lower ball joints. 2) check brake pads for wear, heat from pads warp the rotors and cause the break pedal and steering to shake or vibrate. 3) If nothing can be found wrong with the tie rods or ball joints i recommend changing the rotors and brake pads, a pretty cheap fix.

06 range rover sport's steering shake when apply light break at speed 55 or above. Is it the break disk that gone bad?

It's either the brake rotor that is warped, or the tires are getting out of round and are not rolling evenly when the brakes are applied. Good luck on this repair.

On my 2000 buick lesabre, when I am going 70 - 80 mph and I hit the brakes the car shakes badly. I have read that this car has had tie rod problems, rotor problems and overall steering assembly problems....

if your vehicle shakes when you apply the brakes, your rotors are warped or worn. Replace the brakes and rotors!!Steering system will not cause this!!

Audi 80. My car is shaking when i use my breaks.Nearly every thing are new,include breaks many time.Some good idea?

Hello! If your vehicle shakes on brake application i think you should have the rotors re-surfaced. This will "true" them back up and should correct your problem. Check rear brake system also for drum/rotor problems. Always torque the lug nuts to specifications and in a star pattern. This will ensure the rotors wont warp due to impoper tightening. Hope you find this information useful!

My car shakes after applying brakes at high speeds of 60 to 70 MPH on my 2001 / IS300 lexus. I recently had the rotors turned and put on new break pads before this problem really became noticable. I...

Well even though you had the rotors turned, they still could be warped and causing the car to shake at a high rate of speed when the brakes are applied. My suggestion is to replace the rotors asap.

check the axle end play. if there is significant axle in-out motion, this will cause excessive inside pad wear. it will also cause the caliper to bind under breaking conditions, yet slide freely when there is no stress applied

Hi, It sounds to me like the brake disc(s) could be warped or badly worn - it really needs to be inspected at a garage as soon as possible.D
