I warped mine on the way home from pismo with the toy hauler wheel speed sensor went out which made me lose the trailer brakes.. Had the front rotors turned new pads and 10k miles later and haven't experienced any more wobble

Guess we finally found one semi locally.

I was actually thinking about starting a thread like this the other night, voicing my frustrations with these things. Everyone i work on anymore is horrendous shape brake-wise. And the pins wont even break free from from caliper bracket, which means it's one big piece of scrap metal at that point. Caliper, bracket, and pads. Rotors were junk in the first place, which is the aftermath of the caliper pin sticking in the bore not allowing the caliper to release and/or apply.

The only good thing about the brake system on the new chassis is its braking power and the rear dust shields/parking brake assembly are a lot more stout now.

Hopefully this thread isn't too dead...I have a slight steering wheel wobble as well. 2015 GMC Sierra 2500 HD CCSB with Duramax 56xxx miles. I usually only notice it while the brakes are pretty warm/hot. While towing and slowing off the interstate or empty and slowing off the interstate but not every time. Anyone with similar issues find the fix? I am thinking of either turning rotors or checking ball joints? Maybe slotted rotors? Any help will be appreciated.

Super common. I highly doubt a ball joint would do it. Not sure which rotors to try because oe seem to all do it. Maybe shop around and weigh each parts store's rotor to decide which one might stand a chance of lasting longer before warping. I have no good experience with drilled/slotted rotors, they all seem to warp.

This started happening in 2008. The cheap ass metal they’re using causes them to warp. I replaced mine with napa premium rotors and the problem went away. Like mentioned above you can weigh the rotors. If you get some and they aren’t any heavier take them back. You can also get a well know aftermarket rotor power stop, SSBC, ect just only get slotted never drilled.

Made it 100k before they got turned. Scuffed the pads and put em back on they had tons of life left. Slides definitely needed to be lubed tho.

Thanks for the input guys, I may look into either turning my rotors or upgrading to a heavier rotor so they don't warp...if that is the cause.

Another thing to add to my list that I noticed last night...at lower speeds my actual slowing/stopping pulsates, my brake pedal does not pulsate. Any input on the possible cause to this?

Iím not real clear on your second issue are you talking about during hard stops? Maybe a master cylinder issue.

still original on the 2013 with over 500,000 miles and it's pulled campers have of its life.

You must not know of the exhaust brake to assist you in controlling speeds. Even without it lower gears help.

on 2010 rears wore uneven, still had over 200,000 miles when those were changed. I changed the fronts at 600,000 miles not because of wear, but because they rattled.

So while stopping (empty truck weight) from 45 MPH max once I got down to about 20 MPH or less I could feel the truck lurching...like the brakes were grabbing harder and then lessening. Nothing felt in the pedal, all was felt in the seat...almost as if you were tapping the brakes. Does that help?
