1. Check the tire to make sure there is not separation, local tire shop can do this. If no problem here, then...

2. Have your mechanic check the run out on the front disk rotors. I believe factory spec is 0.004", check the Honda manual to confirm. Make sure you have him check the replacement rotor run out after installation too. They sometimes get damaged in shippment.

I had this problem with my 1985 prelude. I found both front rotors we out of spec. Replaced the rotors and the problem went away.

I have a 1999 Dodge Ram and I have a deceleration jump/vibration at around 50-40 mph. When the brake is lightly applied it happens, when heavy brake applied it stops. I'm thinking front whell bearings


The front rotors are warped, the reason you feel it when lightly braking is because the pads are just brushing the high spots as they come by. Heaving braking will lock them in tighter and you will not notice it. They have to take the rotors off to turn them so they can check the wheel bearings at the same time and replace or pack them. Just have the rotors turned if they are not worn under the federal limits. If they are worn too bad you will have to replace them.

When I apply brakes and slow to around 40 mph I have vibration in steering. I replaced brake pads and tires but did not help any suggestions?


Most of the time, this vibration is caused by warped brake rotors.
It's also possible that the steering or suspension joints are worn.
These should be checked when the brakes are inspected.

Brakes all 4 lock up steering wheel shakes above


OK, when the ABS module is unplugged, the same results. That tells me that the ABS system is not working properly.
Did they look into the master cylinder and other abs related components?
Any ABS codes on it?

If steering wheel shakes above 50 mph that's likely to be the tires on it, rather than a brake problem.

Have tires balanced and rotated and inspected for out of roundness that might cause vibration above 50 mph.

Steering wheel starts to vibrate at 55 mph vibration goes away at 65 mph or if i maintain 55 to 65 mph while applying pressure to the brake pedal vibration stops. also when drive over a curb, (e.g.backing...


i would suspect somewhere in your front end you have a compliance bushing with excessive movement. these cars front ends depend heavily on these style bushings, and as they wear you can start to see tire wear patterns, looseness in steering, and high speed vibration. make sure you have the front end inspected by a shop that is familier with these types of cars. good luck!
