/\\ /\\ /\\ Probably your case.

If you mean the fronts lock up on hard braking, Keep in mind it only has rear anti-lock.

REPLACED FRONT AND BACK BRAKES ON VEHICLE. HAD ROTORS MACHINED AND PUT BACK ON THE VEHICLE ALONG WITH NEW BRAKE PADS. THE ENTIRE CAR SHAKES WHEN I APPLY THE BRAKES AT SPEEDS IN EXCESS OF 15 MILES PERR HOUR. THE SHAKING IS NOT IN THE STEERING WHEEL. THINKING IT WAS A FRONT END PROBLEM I REPLACED THE FRONT ROTORS AND PADS AGAIN. BEFORE I REPLACE THE REAR ROTORS AND PADS WHAT COULD STILL BE CAUSING THE PROBLEM.

I have a 2000 chevy malibu. I recently replaced the front brake pads. After this when driving down the road when i hit bumps something in the frontend rattles, i can hear and feel it.. when i hit or ride the brakes over the same roads it stops rattling. As soon as i let off the brakes the rattle comes back. I have taken both front wheels back off and checked all bolts. The caliper bolts are all tight. I am using an impact on the wheel. They are placed back on, tightened then retightene


A loose pad could do it.Check the pad anti-rattle clips again. The pads should be snug in the calipers. Its possible the new pads are not the exact same shape as the old ones. ... Cars & Trucks

1987 Isuzu Trooper purchased in 2009 with "new" brakes. Right front caliper occasionally sticks and won't release. Replaced rubber brake lines. Can you use a C-clamp to push back piston or is this similar to the 1991 rear where the piston needs to be rotated back in? Any other suggestions? Also, the '91 rear brake pistons required lithium lube or similar high temp lube between piston & pad, any similar requirement on the front in 1987?


Yes you can use a c-clamp. If the caliper is sticking I would go get a new caliper. Otherwise you will be replacing pads and rotors on that side more than you should have to. ... 1987 Isuzu Trooper

1996 Chevy Beretta with 69000 miles. Rear brakes seem to grab before the front because the rear end "dives" before the front. With a little more brake pressure, the anti-lock comes on and will hardly stop the car. This happens on dry or wet pavement. I can hear the ABS "motor" when this occurs. This car has been in the family since new and all that has been done to brakes is new shoes and pads at 65000 with drums and rotors both turned. Do you think it is the modulator ***. or am I looking too


Not sure if this will help you much but, my daughter's 94 Berretta did that last week, almost immediately after I washed the car. It was pretty strange. I took the rear tires off and checked the shoes and they looked fine. I just blew everything out ... 1995 Chevrolet Beretta

I had new brake pads and rotors put on my 2005 equionox...now I am getting a grinding noise (intermitently) when making a final stop at a light or stop sign. Sometimes it feels like it's not stopping properly. This seems to be effecting just the one front tire. I've had the car back several times and last week they put on new brake pads (said the other ones were defective)...well now the grinding sounds is back and I'm confused.


May be the grade of pad that was used in replacement,Would find out if ceramic brake pad is available for this vehicle.They usually cost a little more but provide better perfomance typically less noise issues and create less brake dust. ... 2005 Chevrolet Equinox

My 2007 Kia Optima has 63,000 miles on it. I have had to replace the rear brakes at approx. 25,000 miles. I now have to replace them again at 63,000 miles. The back rotors are warped and need to be replaced, possibly for the second time, I'm not sure. The repair shop says the front brakes look new. Since most braking is done by the front brakes, I can't understand this opposite wear situation. Please advise what you think is wrong and how to fix it. Thank you, Andy
