Default Pulsating while Braking

Recently on my 2001 Exp. 4x4 I have been experiencing a pulsating from the right front end. when braking. The brake pedal doesn't pulsate. I have since replaced both rotors, pads and calipers. Steering wheel stays straight. It has 90K miles.

Don't know where to look next. Any help would be appreciated

It could be several things! Is the ABS light on or blink when the it pulsates? Could be the caliper also.

There is no ABS light on.

The caliper was changed because I thought it may have been causing it, but it did not change.

It is something in the suspension. Sounds close to the "Ford death wobble". Check shocks, springs, tierods, bushings and anything else including a-arms, control arms and swaybar.

I will check the suspension as you indicated. It doesn't wobble. Can you provide more details on this "ford death wobble"? Thanks

I'm not sure if the ford death wobble is the same as what I had but I'd call it a death wobble. When ever I would hit the breaks I would get a very rapid and strong wobble in the steering. Mine was caused by the passenger side lower ball joint.

Its was a very strong wobble, it felt as if it was going to shake the entire truck to death and it was very dangerous.


Ill be following this because i still have the same pulsating while breaking. I am very sure my shocks are bad so ill be checking them first :)

Sounds Like a Ball Joint....I just had a F-150 that did the same thing...was a lower ball joint...right side too!

Will have a look at the shocks and lower ball joint.

Thank You
