Brakes problem
1999 Plymouth Voyager 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

Just had new front metalic pads and rotors installed along with rear wheel cylinders. Also replaced shock absorbers and struts. Now getting grunting noise and brake peddle vibration as car comes to a complete stop during brakeing. Noise only occurs as speed drops below 10mph during brakeing. Shop that did work says that this is normal but I get a different explaination of cause from 3 different people at shop.
Do you
have the same problem?

Grunting noise can and will occur under low speed and pedal release. As for the shaking, thats not normal and is probably due to a slightly warped rotor, have the shop determine which is warped and change it again, the parts store they bought it from is on the hook for that!

Had shop manager test drive (did not tell him what you had said). He thinks problem is in ABS system, even though ABS light is not coming on, because it only occurs at less than 10 mph. Says it might be ABS pump or possibly air in system. They are flushing system now. My question is: could they have done something to mess up the ABS system during the brake and suspension repairs or is this just coincidence? Thanks

If you can feel the ABS pump at 10 MPH or less, check the front hub bearings too, any play there will cause false activation. All makes and models.
