Silverado 2500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 22,000 miles
My Silverado's brakes are vibrating and failing to stop, again ! both front wheel sensors were replaced, per G. M.'s recall. Also I have replaced all four brake rotors at my own expense. This failure to stop has nearly caused two accidents. On one occasion the vehicle only stopped after running into a chain stretched across a driveway, this resulted in some minor damage to the front grill. I temporarily disabled the anti-lock brake system by removing the fuse, but this disables the cruise control as well. It is very much a matter of safety that the truck stops when it is supposed to.
