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.

Brakes pulsate when applied.
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.
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.
My 2000 Toyota 4Runner steering vibrates around 65 mph I have done tire balancing numerous times and replacing rotors. I have taken it to countless mechanics, suspension specialist shops etc. problem still exists.
Pulsations when applied brakes. Problem continues due to price of parts.
When I push the brake pedals it has no pressure and it take the truck a minute to stop.
new rotors & pads 1 1/2 years ago , problems back just like before
Warble in front end while completing stop .not yet fixed
Corrosion of front rotors
same as mentioned and solution
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
