  2. try seeking the problem in the wheel bearing. besides that, look at lower control arms, suspension, and steering components.

    U also might want to check your rotor to see if its warped. Mine was doing the some thing and i ended up having to get new rotors.

    vibrating or your wheel actually moving left - right, or moving around the steering axis?


    minor to moderate vibration could be the pads/rotors, but wheel movement can be due to a loose control arm/steering linkage. When the brakes take the tension off the steering system, the slack is released and the wheel will move violently. check around. Otherwise it is just most likely your pads or rotors.
