Also had the rear calipers checked which were still good, replaced the pads while I was there. I bled the brakes and there is no air in the lines. H E L P Please!!

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

Strong Shutter or Pulsation when applying brakes


Have you checked the rear brakes? They can cause shaking just like the front can.

Replaced the right front wheel bearing after pulling the old one it was bad, Tire store said it was not the tires that was causing the virbration, replaced pads and rotors now the virbration feels like...


Could be the inner cup of the cv shaft or the carrier bearing if your vehicle has a halfshaft before the cv axle. If your getting pedal pulsation it must be a bad rotor. Now it should only do it when brakes are applied. Ive seen cases where the pads are very new and the rotor is so warped it will pulsate abd vibrate even withouth applying brakes. Other possobilty is that spindle was damaged and warped/ bent while pressing in new hub bearing.

I have a 2004 alero and when I press on the brakes to stop at a red light or stop sign a vibration occurs and it's loud but when I put it in park it stops vibrating. What can I do about this problem?


Sounds like you have warped rotors and or a lose caliper mounting bolt . When you stop do you feel a vibration in the brake peddle or in the steering wheel or both ? IF you feel the pulsation in the brake peddle I would suspect a brake pad / brake rotor problem . Now if you do not feel it in either and the vibration is through the whole car with out the brakes being applied i would think it may be related to and engine/drive line problem (motor mount /trans mount /axle problem)

Pulsating Brakes


The most common cause of brake pulse is wheel bearings, because the rotor wobbles.
The way to tell is that you will also feel it through the steering wheel, when not applying brakes.
If the rotor wobbles, it will also make the brakes spongey, because the wobble will cause some piston retraction, causing a longer throw when applying.
It is usually the fronts that go bad before the back. And one side before the other, often because a bad seal allowed water in. But you can tell by jacking up and feeling for play.

If not a wheel bearing, then I would consider ABS problem, or the rotor was installed wrong.

Pulsating drone sound when driving


On that car, it's probably one of the brake rotors, if the wheels are torqued unevenly, or too tight, they warp easily.

THUMPING AND PULSING WHEN BRAKING. WE HAVE CHECKED ALL BRAKES , ROTORS, CALIPERS. WHAT ELSE CAN IT BE. I AM A WOMAN, SO MY EXPLANATION IS THAT IT HAS A BUMPING THUMPING VIBRATION.


on a clear road try gently applying the E brake, see if that produces the feeling, I would say either a rotor is warped (wobbled from side to side due to heat disatortion) or a drum. It is not easy to see these faults, with a wheel off you need to turn the rotor and look for the wobble, it only takes a wobble of 1/16 or 2mm to make the brake pedal pulse. This is a large safety issue as your brakes will be impaired.

Had bad vibration in front end of car when brakes applied,installed new rotors and pads,still have slight vibration when brakes applied.


do u feel the vibration in the steering wheel or in the seat,i bet the most vibration was coming out of the front brakes and a little out of the rear brakes,u might want to change the rear brakes if the vibration is still annoying,also were the front wheels torqued to spec when installed?? if not u might end up with warped front brakes again,hope this helped
