Subject: Front pads cause bad vibration
IP: Logged

Message:
This happened when I hit a small section of the road that was flooded.
Brakes caused whole front of truck to shake when coming to a stop, seem to be very grabby more than normal.
I have had disk brakes groan a little on other vechiles, but never this violant shake.
It clears up after driving awhile.
I was told to use only Mopar pads, the guy I got the truck from used an after market set, but I don't know what brand it was.
What brand pads would be good for this problem?
Should I go with Mopar only?
Thanks.

there is no reason to "only" use mopar pads. There are some very good pads (some better than OE) available from Raybestos, Bendix, Carbon Metallic, etc. when I go to the auto store, I usually choose the best (or near the top) of what is available. Any brake pad is a trade-off of friction, dust, noise, life, cost, etc.

STAY OFF FLOODED ROADS
you never know when there will be fast moving water that will sweep you away, or a sinkhole or the endge of the road has crumpled away and you can't see it through the murky water or the bridge that used to be there isn't.
