This is normally a sign of warped rotors. It will require that the rotors be remove and turned on a lathe in a machine shop. Not very expensive to have them turned. You will also need to have the pads replaced. Warped rotors are caused by excessive heat or the lug nuts being over-tightened. Make sure the lug nuts are torqued to factory specifications. rotors are warped- either from overheating(braking too hard) or overtightening the lug nuts - should use hand wrench and torque to your vehicle's specs -never use air tools to tighten lug nuts.
Front wheel shudder could come from worn tires, bad brakes, or worn front end components. Check all of these to find the cause of the shudder.
The friction caused by the brakes causes the car to decelerate. This negative acceleration, in turn, causes a force to be applied to all those in the car. This is the lurch you feel.
your brake rotors are warped. You should repalce you brake pads and have the rotors resurfaced if possible, or replaced.
They are equipped with a "telltale" warning that shrieks when the brakes are applied, with the brake pads are too low and need replacing.
apply your brakes gently while accelerating at the same time
They are warm because the friction makes the molecules in the brakes move faster, which causes it to warm up.
because the alignment is off Warped or out of round brake rotors/drums.
Check the brake fluid reservoir, it may be low on brake fluid indicating it is time to have the brakes inspected.
One possiblity could be the power brake booster is shot. When you apply the brakes it creates a large vacuum leak, enough to stall engine.
no, just the wheels the brakes apply to, usually the front brakes
Worn bushes or warped brake rotor. Replace faulty item.
Time for new brakes or adjustment.
Brake rotors or drums need to be machined or replaced. If it causes steering wheel shaking, check front brakes. If happens when applying parking brake look to rear brake problem.
apply your brakes gently as you accelerate
first of all, the pads may be semi-metallic and have chunks of metal in them which may cause the squeal, change to a less metallic pad may help, also the backing of the pads should have an anti-squeal gel applied to them, when you apply the brakes, the pads will hyper vibrate and can cause a squeal. The gel will stop the vibrating. first of all, the pads may be semi-metallic and have chunks of metal in them which may cause the squeal, change to a less metallic pad may help, also the backing of the pads should have an anti-squeal gel applied to them, when you apply the brakes, the pads will hyper vibrate and can cause a squeal.

Apply the brakes hard and steer out of danger.
If your vehicle has abs brakes, just apply the brakes hard and steer away from danger. If the vehicle does not have abs brakes, try to apply the brakes without locking up the wheels and going into a skid then steer away from danger. If you lock up the brakes and go into a skid you will lose control of your steering.
While driving, apply the brakes gently for a short distance, as you maintain your speed.
No, that is not true. Water is going to get on the rotor and on the pads no matter what you do. This water will quickly evaporate once you apply the brakes. Even if you do not apply the brakes centrifugal force will remove the water as you drive. Once you apply the brakes the heat created will remove the water very quickly. You may experience a slight loss of good braking the first time you apply the brakes after going through water which is normal.
Warped brake rotors. This is a very common problem for the 1999-2004 Grand Cherokees. You will need to have your rotors replaced, or resurfaced. The best resurface method is with an on car brake lathe.
Parking brakes apply generally on rear wheels to control enough sliding of the vehicle.
You have warped rotors. They will need to be removed and trued or replaced. Causes of this are lug nuts overtightened, or heat from heavy braking at high speeds.
vacuum leak 65 power brakes run off a vacuum, when you apply your brakes you stop the air leak. 65;
your back brakes are supposed to apply before your front brakes, they do this so your car does not take a nose dive every time you apply the brakes. but if it is very noticeable i would check the adjustment of your rear brakes (if you have a disc/drum setup) or i would check your proportioning valve if they are locking up
