95 crown vic cop car

I have a 95 crown vic police car, the abs brakes are giving me a headache. I replaced the front pads, but the brake pedal shudders for a half a second, they stop ok but the pedal shudders, it feels funny, I checked the fuses and replaced a abs relay with no change. what else could it be? thanks

Sounds like your rotors are warped.

Re: 95 crown vic cop car

If it's a buzzing shudder, usually one of the sensors is dirty, damaged or defective. If it's more of a surging, the rotors are warped. When the pads are replaced, it's a good idea to turn the rotors.

Re: 95 crown vic cop car

Any one knows what the ballpark price is to have the rotors worked to get the warp out of them? Just replaced balljoints on both sides which has left me low on funds for a bit!

Re: 95 crown vic cop car

In our area they charge $18 each to turn them if they aren't to thin. There's a minimum spec and they can't be turned if they would be thinner than that. They can warp faster the thinner they are too. Lot's of hard braking and you're back in the same boat.

New ones are dirt cheap on rockauto. Unless you're chasing criminals you can downgrade to the civilian version and save yourself a lot of money.
