when braking i would feel the pedal pulsating...figured the pads were finished. checked them out and they were not in that great a shape so i changed them all around. I'm still getting a pulsating feeling in the brake pedal....u guys think i just need to bleed them or are the discs warn or warped or something ? thanks
New rotors and pad do wonders for brake feel.
The hint of the day is 'do not' over tighten the front discs.
It can put a wavey distortion in them that will be temperature sensitive and drive you nuts wondering what's going on, at different times.
If left like that long enough , the discs won't recover from a wear pattern by retorqueing.
Probably a stuck piston in the caliper also. Everything U ever heard bad about disc brakes is started with sticky caliper pistons. These are usually brought about by a hole to the boot seal. When U got a truck 10 years old, 100,000 miles, save UR selves a lot of grief.
I broke two studs off getting a tire off my truck, with the spare on I had a bad vibe getting to town to get a few new studs. Went away when i replaced them.
BTW. the pricing on studs is variable. Ford sold me the only one in stock for 6 bucks, the Parts Source store nailed me for 23 fun tickets! WTF?
