Brake Shudder.

Recommended Posts

hey. just got my lexus a couple of nights ago and when you put ur foot on the brake you get shuddering through the steering wheel and pedal. its worse at low speeds

an rac friend of mine reckons it could be dirt behind the disc as its just had them replaced.

does this seem about right.

will get the wheels off soon to inspect but was just wondering what u guys thought?

cheers

If the brakes have just been swapped and everything there checks out to be ok then did you also have a geometry check on the car, ie camber etc, as maybe that could also be out and causing a judder to the wheel?

As for the pedal really not sure, was the brake system bled properly etc?

it is normaly the discs but were they have been done i dont know

it could be faulty discs and i take it the pads were changed as well

dirt would not cause it to judder
