front end pulsating when braking

When I brake there is a slight pulsating in my front end. I haven't checkerotors yet but does anyone have any suggestions? Also I hear a click in my rear when I go over bumps

my guess is your rotors are warped. you might get away with having them turned. on my magnum, when they get hot they will do the same thing. but funny as it sounds, when they cool down they are good. who puts cheap rotors on a magnum with a hemi? oh i guess that would be chrysler.

I got brembo rotors on my front end. I bought the truck with warped rotors. I figured brembo is good alot of high hp cars have them. Plus they were cheap like 40 bucks a piece on sale.

Frozen rotors I think there called are really good

Make sure the caliper sliding pins are not frozen. If one of the two is stuck that can cause the pulsating too

Ohh and the slide pins are easy to check. Take the caliper off and there's gunna be two bolts on the back of the caliper that go into these pins. They have a little rubber boot on the exposed part. You will know what I'm talking about when u look at it.

Those pins are sappose to be able to slide out and into the hole freely alot of times people forget to grease them do the become sized. And that make the caliper ride on the rotor. If there stuck in there good it will take a torch to get them out.
