Both great responses above. Did u bleed them, bleed them again and did u adjust the cable? If you get through these checks I would guess you need to check the proportioning valve however, I believe the proportioning valve is typically designed to determine different fluid pressures/allocations between front and rear.

Rebleed the front calipers again. The brakes pads are sticking in position or the amount of fluid be distributed to each wheel is not equal, therefore the pads are riding on the rotors continuously. Rebleeding them will assure you are getting even pressure applied to both wheels and allow the calipers to collapse after you remove your foot from the brake.

Abs sound

Sometimes limited driving can affect the front brake pads and rotors due to corrosion, and dirt...inspect the pads for being worn unevenly...and the rotors for warping...the rotors would also cause the steering wheel to shake when applying the brakes...A small fix for a nice low mileage Ranger:) Hope this helps.

2004 Chevy Aveo The brake pedal pulsates and activates the ABS system when the brake is applied at low speeds

check rotor and brake pads. also check fluid level. one of those 3 causing problems.
more and likely its the rotor. its cheaper to buy new ones for around 20-30 dollars.
warped rotor will cause the pedal to ..pulsate. and more and likely you pads are wore.
when getting new rotor always put new shoes on so the rotor it can wear evenly.

Just changed front brakes now have slight pull to right. no steering whel play or extra pull on breaking, where should I start in diagnosing

Did you remove all rust from caliper and pad abutments
(sliding surfaces) ?
Did you put anti-seize on those parts, that need to slide
and be protected from future rusting?
Did you machine the rotors?
You don't put new pads on worn rotors
Did you bleed all 4 wheels (flush)
The right side is pulling because you most likey
have a caliper not completely releasing.
Sounds like you put the problem in there

My monte carlo shakes when i put on the brakes

Check for bent wheel bearing hub. Beyond that, have a runout test done on the rotors while on the vehicle.

Brake pedal pulsates when appling brakes

If the new rotors were not allow to seat after replacement they will warp extremely easily. Easy to check. Remove wheel and check for trueness of rotor, a dead give away is if you see a blueish tint on the rotor.

Front break pads

This is an easy one. Abs or no abs changing the pads is the same.

You have to unbolt the caliper, pull out the old pads and reseat the caliper piston ( I use a large C-Clamp and the old pad to push the piston back into place.)

You are probably going to want to get your rotors turned. i bring mine to NAPA.

Put in the new pads, bolt the Caliper back on and your good to go.
