Toyota 4Runner Front Brake Rotor Wear Can Cause Pulsations

(27 reports)

Front brake rotors can wear causing a pulsation felt in the brake pedal. Our technicians tell us this condition is best corrected by replacement of the front rotors and brake pads.

Bought Used 4Runner. Brakes pulsated very roughly when applied. Took to Midas for Inspection. $1850 estimate to replace front brake pads and rotors, rear shoes, cv joints and a few "cracked" belts. Took the truck to my mechanic; $650 in parts and labor. Midas lied about the rear shoes needing replacement as they were practically brand new. Belts showed no signs of wear or cracking. Find a good mechanic you can trust and give him or her your business!!!! -
Pulsating brakes in front when pressed, good until now, no other problems with vehicle. -
Brakes pulsate when applied. -
Exactly how it says... when medium braking there is a shimmy in the front as the vehicle comes to a stop. I had the pads changed to ceramic and new rotors installed and viola - shimmy pulsation is gone. -
Rotors are bad, haven't fixed it yet -
front brake rotors rusting on outside, can be felt when brake is applied -

Yes, that is a true statement. I still have not had them replaced just yet, but I know i have to get them done -
