WHEN APPLYING BRAKE I HAVE A GRINDING SOUND AND MY BRAKE PULSATES AND GETS SOFT A LITTLE BIT?

2002 Chevrolet Avalanche • 131,000 miles

I have a grinding sound when I apply the brake. I changed the pads and the calipers and still does this I cant seem to figure out what it is exactly?

MAYBE YOUR ROTORS ARE WARPED/ GROOVED, NEED TURNING OR REPLACING

IS IT ALL RE-ASSEMBLED CORRECTLY?

INVESTIGATE POSSIBLE WORN OUT WHEEL BEARING

WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER BRAKES. DID YOU DO BOTH ENDS?

I have inspected the brakes. I will replace the rotors and try that out they didn't seem to be in bad shape though. How would I inspect the wheel bearing and tell if it's going bad or not?

THIS MAY BE THE BEST WAY TO 'SPLAIN!

I REALLY JUST WANT YOU TO "SEE" HOW TO CHECK...I HAVE SORTA INEXPENSIVE DIAL INDICATORS BUT THEY WORK JUST LIKE THESE DO.....I AM NOT TRYING TO PROMOTE THE PRODUCT IN THIS VIDEO, BUT JUST WANT TO SHOW YOU WHAT ALL MIGHT COULD AFFECT YOU

I REALLY LIKE THIS GUY, HE HAS A VIDEO FOR MOST ANY VEHICLE ISSUE

HE EXPLAINS THINGS REALLY WELL AND IN LAYMAN'S TERMS

THERE ARE A BILLION MORE VIDEOS, SOME MAY BE JUST FOR YOUR SPECIFIC VEHICLE...IT'S ALL IN HOW YOU "WORD" YOUR YOU TUBE SEARCH AND PAYING ATTENTION TO SUGGESTIONS DOWN THE SIDE

THEY WILL TRY TO SIDE TRACK YOU WITH "GIRLY VIDEOS"---PAY THEM NO ATTENTION---THEY WILL ONLY GET YOU IN TROUBLE, WHEN "MAMA" SEES WHAT YOU ARE LOOKIN' AT......STAY FOCUSED!

KEEP US INFORMED
