HI
My honda shakes only at higher speeds while braking.
Ive replaced front breaks, rotors, rear drums.

I feel its the cv joints but how can I be certain and its not the wheel bearings hubs.

Thanks

Hi Bill,

CV joints would not cause vibrations when braking. Brake rotors, steering linkages and excessive clearance of the front wheel bearings would cause that.

After replacing of the front rotors, did the problem goes away for a certain period of time? If yes, the rotor has runout again, not surprising and I would suggest checking the runout.

Before doing any refacing if required, remove the rotor and clean the hub abd inner seat of rotor. Any rust would result in uneven seating of the rotor and cause the vibration.

Here is the deal.
I installed new rotors and new drums. The break shoes are also in good condition. There is no play in either front wheel, Side to side nor up and down.

After the rotors and drums were replaced I have no change in the vehicle shaking while breaking at higher speeds 50 MPH or higher.
I also cleaned any rust away from where the rotors seat to the main hub and I will double chack that

Thank you very much!

Was there any significant difference in the vibrations before and after replacement?

Were the replaced parts OEM or after market?

Did you check if the rims were warped? Try rotating the wheels from front to rear.

Rotors and drums from Napa.

No difference after replacing parts at all
I moved rear tires to front, front to rear and spun each tire to check rims etc and inspected each tire and they all look good.

Thanks again

Are the rims stock?

Some non OEM rims centralising hole does not fit snugly onto the hub and this can cause the rim to run out.

I would suggest measuring the rotor runout with a dial gauge to confirm if you have a set of bad rotors out of the box.
