, 240XXX MILES, SHUDDERING WHILE BRAKING

1991 Honda CRX • 4 cylinder FWD Manual • 240,000 miles

So my 91 crx has quite a bit of miles on it so I know alot of things need replacing. When I come to a hard stop or breaking on a down hill grade it will shudder violently on the passenger side. If I press too hard it will make almost a grinding sound. Ive replace the break pads and the rotors are fine. Also it pulls to the right when I brake. What could it be?

How did you inspect the rotors? Sounds like they're warped.

Break the bleeder loose on the caliper, then compress the piston slowly. If it is hard to compress, it sounds like you have a caliper problem, and is recommended to replace them in pairs. If it compresses easily, it sounds like you have a brake hose problem, which also should be replaced in pairs. Either of these problems will cause the rotor to warp, because the pressure is never fully released from the pads.
