Brakes problem
2002 Dodge Van 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 114, 00 miles

When I brake my van jerks a little. What is causing this? I'm planning on getting new brakes tomorrow.

Do you
have the same problem?

If "pulsates" would describe it better, suspect warped front brake rotors. They can cause a shimmy in the steering wheel too. Egg-shaped rear brake drums will often cause the brake pedal to pulsate up and down.
