Braking Sign In

My 2008 Ford F-150 w/4.8 engine, and 31,000 miles shutters or vibrates when braking. This is most noticeable in the steering wheel. Please advise.

If this is a braking problem (my guess) should I use a dealer or brake specialist?

Thanks for your help.

Brake rotors are distorted. I would recommend replacement, not resurface or the problem will come right back.


We offer help in answering questions, clarifying things or giving advice but we are not a substitute for an on-site inspection by a professional.
