Shakin when Brakin

I am new to this forum stuff but i have got alot of info from this sight. but i need help from anyone who knows what i am talking about. while i am braking lets say getting off the freeway or coming to a stop sign. my trucks steering wheel and front end start shaking pretty bad. its enough to make you feel like the truck is going to fall apart. and it has new brakes and rotors and is still doing it. any help would be alot of help. thanks pat

Ball joints and/or u-joints. Mine did the same exact thing, and I had bad rotors and ball joints. Needless to say, with new Icon shocks as well, my truck rides like a Cadillac

Hey thanks SickStroke6.0 i'll check the ball joints out. i just replaced the rotors and pads thinking that might help and kept doing the same thing. as for shocks i've just been running the lifetime replacement shocks from les shwabs.

Mine pulses when braking at slow speeds. I think I have a slightly warped rotor.

Better check the calipers mine was doing the same thing. Went to change the pads and turn the rotors to find out the pistons on the rear driver side were broke. Had to end up buying new rotor, caliper, and pads. Changed them out, 2 weeks later went to leave work front driver side caliper was seized to the rotor. Tried to rock it loose and busted the caliper dumping most of the fluid on the ground.Got all that fixed no I've got a vibration again more than likely passenger now. This is on a 2000 F-250 4X4 PS

I changed my brake pads, rotors, and ball joints and mine still shakes. All of the things i replaced were bad but didn't fix the issue. I posted a thread on here for the same problem and someone brought to my attention the pins that the rotors move on need to be as free as possible and i didn't remember checking mine so when i get it back I'm doing that first and i'll update ya on the cost and if it fixes it or not.

As everyone has said, check your calipers.... Also have a look at the trackbar bolt. Make sure it is tight.

My money is on hanging calipers. Grab a infrared thermo gun ($25 bucks at Harbor Freight) and check all yout rotor temps....or simply use the back of your hand. If the caliper is hanging up you will know it. When was the last time your brale fluid was completely FLUSHED...not just bled, but flushed....should be done every two years...one of the main causes for caliper pistons to hang up is due to water usting the cylinder walls.

My rear shakes really bad when I get off the freeway. I was thinking I needed to get my rotors turned but I will check my calipers too.

I replaced shocks, entire brake casing and all (pads, rotors, the whole nine yards. Thanks to some idiot mechanic), and ball joints all at the same time. My truck no longer shakes one bit.
