Vibration While Braking?

Hi,

My friend's 2004 Acura TSX vibrates when braking hard, but...

We replaced the front pads/rotors 9 months ago, and replaced a bad upper control arm last week. Since the UCA was replaced, both front wheels are super-solid when rocking the vehicle while parked. I can't isolate the vibration to either side of the car. It's not the ABS kicking in. Applying the parking brake at speed doesn't produce the vibration, but also doesn't produce the braking power that would be needed to generate the vibration using the pedal. What else could be causing this vibration?

its your rotors , they are going to be bent , if you lift up the car , take off the front tires , and look at them while they are turning , you will see they spin as if they were wobbling , which causes the vibration , cause your applying even force against an uneven surface ,

It's called rotor runout. Can be corrected one of two ways. By turning the rotors with a brake lathe or replacing them rear brakes will also cause a vibration

Get a good brand name rotor and brake pad like akebono and you should be good to go... Don't go for the cheap brands or they will fail again probably within a year... GL

Well, based on what I've search from blogs, forum discussion and little research on Google, most probably the problem is with your ROTOR.

In my opinion, worn caliper guiding pins could also be a reason for vibration. However, if you are looking to replace of of your Acura TSX parts then I guess you should check this inventory automotix.net/usedautoparts/2004-acura-tsx-inventory.html

Why does your location say Florida when you sent the stupid reply above from Ludhiana, India?

Get a life.
