Braking on 1990 Chevrolet Lumina

Normal braking is OK, but when you need to stop quickly and you press down hard on the brakes it feel like stopping on ice with the ABS on and you don't stop quickly. Front brakes look ok replaced rear caliper and it improved slightly.

Probably the front pads are getting worn out and trying to stop on pads that are near their usable life can cause this as new pads have about 1/2 inch of friction material when new and trying to stop on material that is very thin 1/16 inch makes the caliper work overtime, Have your brakes checked before they damage the rotors you can find a shop here www.repairpal.com/directory
