Looking for some help. I own a 2006 f250SD Lariat. The last 3 years or so I have had continuous brake problems, and now I'm at my wits end. Here's what happens;
With the truck not running I can push the brake pedal to the floor it gives some resistance but I can get it there. When I start the truck the pedal will go to the floor. When I hook up my trailer trailers brakes to the brake controller and push down on the pedal, the trailer brakes will not actuate nor will the brake controller show any gain. I then actuate the brake controller manually and the trailer brakes work and gain is shown on the controller as per normal. So this tells me the controller is working properly.
When I drive the truck either with or without the trailer and press the brake pedal for braking, the brakes start to shudder so hard that I have a difficult time keeping the truck under control. To me it seems that I have a warped rotor, but the front two rotors were turned, the rear two are brand new. Then I thought I have a sticky brake, as I have had sticking brakes in the past, I have had one in the front and one in the back replaced last year.
Could this be a master cylinder or hydroboost issue at least with the trailer issue I have. Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this. I'm a competent mechanic with proper equipment to service brakes, I'm just totally stumped.
Also can someone recommend the best pads, calipers, rotors that I can install that will stop my truck.
Thanks for any help, it is much appreciated.
