RE: [DML] Re: Brakes squeaking



My steering would shake violently when I applied the brakes.  I thought that
the rotors were warped.  The rotors were fine; the pistons in the brake
calipers were hanging up because of crud and corrosion.  I have flushed the
brake system several times over the years.  You have three choices with the
calipers, rebuild them yourself, purchase rebuilt calipers or buy new ones.
I bought rebuilt loaded calipers from www.specialtauto.com.  I installed the
new parts and have had absolutely no problems with them.  I bought the
package that included new SS flex lines and the bleeder.

Generally your brake pedal will pulse and steering wheel will
shake/vibrate with bad rotors. This is provided you don't have any bad
steering parts which will cause the steering wheel to shake and
vibrate while slowing down as well. If this isn't the case, then its
probably pads, take the tires and you will be able to see how worn
your pads are. Make sure there is no grit or dirt on or near the pads
as this can cause some squeaking and do a numnber on your rotors if a
particle gets between the pad and rotor. Dani B. #5003
