Why would your Explorer make a squealing noise and shake when you come to a stop?

thats more than likely your brakes or your wheel last car did that...can prove to be a little pricey The squealing is from little metal tabs on your brake pads that make contact with your rotors when your pads are almost gone. It is their sole function in life to squeal so that you know it's time to get new brake pads. The shaking while braking is from warped rotors, and you'll have to either buy new rotors or have your old ones "turned" at a machine shop.
