01 dakota front brakes

2096 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  valiant67
sometime when applying the brakes the pedal pulses really bad, other times it's as smooth as can be. when it shakes it's really shakes bad, like a bent rotor, but if one was bent why does it only do it sometimes? Any ideas??

Warped rotors. I had this happen in my 84 Daytona, it would just about shake apart when coming off the highway, but smooth at lower speeds. Changed pads and rotors and it's rock-steady under all conditions.

I agree, it probably is the rotors but a missing ABS tone ring tooth or a stripped and loose caliper hold down bolt could be other less common items. The stripped caliper bolt got me on the 1999 Dakota which used a similar setup to your 2001.
