#1

I have changed the rotor, inner and outer bearings, and the brake shoes look pretty good. My truck still shakes when I stop, it acts like bad rotors, but they are new.


#2

Have you checked for something like worn tie rod ends/ball joints?

#3

I have turned plenty of new rotors that were warped.


#4

Check of tie rods & ball joints is a must.

You also need to check the rotor-hub mating surface. Even small amounts if debris there will keep the rotor from seating evenly on the hub. Also use a torque wrench on the lugs & torque to spec.

I assume you’re talking about the front (and pads rather than shoes). Don’t ignore the rear.


#5

Cig’s right. As are also Tester and Pete.

And when you replace rotors or shoes, you should clean the preservative coating off the surface with brake cleaner. Did you do this?


#6

If you are going to do your own brakes, at some point you are going to have to buy a dial indicator and a magnetic stand / mount…As Cig pointed out, your truck has 4 brakes, not just two…
