Whenever i go to brake in my 93' pickup, my whole truck starts to raddle and shake... the shaking is pretty rough... i just recently had a brand new brake system installed so im not sure if its that or not... i had the front left wheel jacked up today and i was able to wiggle the wheel back and forth about 1/4 inch side to side... my brake fluid is full... and ive had my pop stand outside and watch for anything in the wheel wen i come down the street.... he didnt see anything so im pretty confused at this point..... anything i can do to stop this problem?? it feels like my car is about to fall apart on me...


thanks

What do you mean you had a new system installed? like calipers, rotors,etc. or did you just have new pads and have the rotors resurfaced, you might want to take it back to the shop that did the work.

Ok if you have a vib. it could be warped rotors, or drums, or it could be that whoever did the work left your front wheel bearings loose. i have a 1971 torino that did that to me, i thought the vibe was from warped rotors but it was really loose wheal bearings.

sounds like your rotors are warped.

it has been discussed and debated, and ultimately agreed that REPLACING the rotors is a much wiser course than RESURFACING them.

good luck!
