I was doing what I thought was a routine brake job on my truck when finished I took a drive and there was a judder where the pedal pulsates and vibration can be felt in the steering wheel.
On the front end new rotors and new pads were installed, and on the rear only brake shoes as the drums did not look that worn.
In an attempt to correct it I replaced the rotors and pads again on the front with no change.
Later I tried using the e brake and it juddered that way so I thought due to the front brakes not being used it must be the rear brakes causing the problem. So, in attempt to correct that I installed new drums on the back with no change in the juddering condition.
A family member, whom is a mechanic told me to try to change the drums again and if that did not work that I might have a bent axle which is probably unlikely I hope since I have never hit anything that hard that I can recall and the truck it not used for plowing.
The pads are supposed to be OE equivalent premium grade from NAPA and the drums are from Autozone if it makes a difference.
Also, no fluid appears to be leaking from the cylinders in the rear, all the hardware seems good and moving freely.
Any ideas would be helpful.
have the same problem?
