A brake question.....
Here's my issue. I've been having a shudder when I brake. I think it's up front because the steering wheel shakes slightly while braking.
I went out today and pulled the front wheels off so I could get a look. I rotated the rotors to check the surfaces. They are flat and uniform all the way across. I didn't see any hot spots. They don't look warped. (Didn't expect them to be since they are so thick) They look good, calipers seem okay, pads look good and have plenty of pad left. Can't really see anything causing the pulsing.
I did find my left lower ball joint needs to be replaced. I pulled out on the bottom of the tire and it moves in and out. The right side had been replaced three years ago, it's fine.
Does anyone have any ideas? It don't want to just starting throwing parts at it.
