Braking problem

OK on my 2002, crew cab, F250 When i press on the brake pedal it makes the whole truck chatter or rumble, its sort of hard to explain what it does. A friend said its like my ABS is on crack lol. It seems like the ABS is messed up or some thing. Any one have any idea what it could be? or a solution because it gets rather annoying when driving through town and every time you touch the brake the whole truck rumbles.

Usually if you were having a problem with your ABS, your ABS light would go on. Try scanning the ABS & see if there are any codes. It sounds to me, though, like your rotors are warped or you may need a brake job. How's your bake fluid level? Have you pulled the wheels off?

I'm guessing the rotors are severely warped.....time for new ones.

Something doesn't sound right. You don't have any problems with steering components? Tires are in good shape? Have you tried scanning for the ABS codes?

I changed out my rotors/pads not too long ago because they were warped. The caliper pins wern't "free sliding" like they should have been. I think that might have been the problem...

The caliper pins should be fine i just put new ones in because the truck was pulling really hard to the left when i braked, i put them in about 2 weeks ago so i wouldnt think they froze up already.
