Front End Vibration While Braking
2003 F250 CC SB 7.3 with 4" lift and 35" tires. (I just bought it two weeks ago)...
My first thought was warped rotors...
The guy I bought the truck from replaced front rotors, (Cheap brand), and pads. No change..
The truck pulsates/vibrates VIOLENTLY!!! when brakes are applied at speeds over 40 MPH. Slow speeds the truck vibrates very little or none at all.
I have noticed that once it starts vibrating, it does it at all speeds.
I was told by my mechanic that since the steering wheel shakes and it only occurs while braking, that the newly installed rotors were "probably" warped.
I bought 4 new Powerslot rotors and Hawk pads. I installed the front rotors & pads, 4 new shocks, and front steering stabilizer with no change.
I am currently installing the rear rotors & pads and repairing a leaking rear axel seal.
I was wondering if anyone else had any advice, guidance.
This is my first Diesel and 4X4 to own.
