  • miles
Vibration throughout the truck was first noticed when applying the brakes at 7K miles. The dealer was contacted and they "resurfaced the pads and rotors" but found no indication of a problem. At 14,500 miles the dealer replaced the drums, rotors, pads, and shoes to stop severe vibration when brakes were applied. By 19,000 miles the vibration had started back. At 24,000 miles the vibration is sever again.
