98 Wagon Brake Shudder

Car Was Fine. Sat For A Few Weeks Now It Shudders Like Crazy. Checked The Front Pads They Are Fine. Rear Brakes Were A Little Grabby But They Seem Fine Now. Tried Driving Fast And Slamming Them On To Try To Get Rid Of Any Rust. Any Ideas What To Check Or Do?

Re: 98 Wagon Brake Shudder

The shudder that you are describing, does it happen when you are applying the brakes or when you are driving down th road

Re: 98 Wagon Brake Shudder

it only happens when i apply the brake. under 40mph it's not really noticable, but it's there, and over 50mph it's really bad escpecially if you have to brake hard.

Rotors probably have imbedded rust spots on them and may be due for replacement.
