Try replacing the brake hose. Sometimes they wear out, get soft and expand inside to the point that they restrict fluid returning to the mater cylinder.

My rear brake pads and rotors have worn out in 1 year and the front brake pads are the original and don't look worn at all. My sub has 150K miles


Its possible. There is an equalizer valve that balances pressure to the 4 wheels.
Two other possible causes are a problem with the parking brake, or the front rotors and pads are glazed and not providing any friction.

My brakes sound like they are grinding


check rear rotors and front rotors for rust buildup (flahlight helps). does the vehicle shake when you come to a hard stop? You will either need to have a front or rear or both brake job (rotors cut or replaced and new brake pads) If the vehicle is shaking when coming to a stop, its probably your front pads. If your hearing the noise from the rear its the rear pads or it you hear it from the front its the front pads. If there significant rust build up or your pads are low a brake job is recommended.

Dry metal noise coming from front


If the noise gets worse when you apply the brakes, it is probably worn out brake pads. If that is making the noise you have damaged the rotors as well. Plan on replacing brake pads and rotors.

Noise coming from front brakes or wheel ,i change brake pads


Did you have the rotors turned? Did you check for rotor runout? Did you remove all rust from hub face and rotor mounting surface? Did you remove rust from caliper or pad slides? Lube all caliper and pad sliding surfaces? Are the pads application specific? Did you flush and bleed the fluid? Did you torque the wheels properly?

99 1500 silverado 4 wheel drive 160,000 miles brake pedal shudders intermitly, feels like the piston in the master cyl. is hanging up. All the brake lines were replced this year, I live in the rustbelt.


I would say that you have a rotor issue. The rotor is the part onto which the brake pads press and apply braking force. You may have front wheel disk brakes or all wheel disk brakes. I would take the vehicle to a reputable brake specialist and have them check the rotors for wear and a condition called "run out". If the rotors are not worn past the manufacturers specs, you can have them machined which will bring them back to true and prevent the shakes. If the rotors are worn, then replace them as worn rotors can shatter causing total loss of braking and control which can be dangerous.. Do this as soon as you can...

My Chevrolet silverado ss abs light came on?


Take the wheel off and check the brake pads, they are probably worn down, and the metal backing on the disc brake pad is rubbing against the rotor.If that is the case, the rotor will need to be replaced, or turned down if it isn't too bad.

Ford Expedition rear brake brake replacement


The rear pads are usualy harder than the front and the harder the pads the more wear there is on the rotors Unless the rotors were worn to the point of replacement they could have had them skimmed.Being soft doesnt make much sense.Have an 03 ba falcon and only replaced our rotors after doing 125000ks The expidition is a similar beast that used the same brake system.Get the rotors skimmed and go to a slightly softer pad to extend rotor life
