I have a 2006 Hemi Ram shortbed 2WD that I bought new, it now has 45K miles and I changed the front pads at 25K even though it did not need them, did not cut the rotors, they looked fine.

Have a nice set of Michelins on it with less then 10K miles. Recently noticed a bad vibration when braking from speed with and without the trailer, when driven just around town don't notice it, just when slowing down fast from highway speeds. Any help will be appreciated.

Von,

There was a TSB that could be related to your issue. I have posted it below.

NUMBER: 02-001-07 REV. A
GROUP: Suspension
DATE: March 31, 2007


SUBJECT:
When Braking The Vehicle May Drift To One Side Or Exhibits A Body Shudder
OVERVIEW:
This bulletin involves identifying the type of vehicle drift that may be present and
implementing the appropriate repair procedures for the type of vehicle drift.
MODELS:
2006 - 2007 (DR) Ram Truck (1500)
NOTE: This bulletin applies to 4x2 and 4x4 light duty (1500 model) vehicles built on
or before November 27, 2006 (MDH 1127XX).
SYMPTOM/CONDITION:
The customer when braking may experience a vehicle drift to one side and/or a vehicle
body shudder. This condition may be more noticeable when brakes are applied at speeds
of 88 km/h (55 mph). The vehicle body shudder may exhibit itself as: steering wheel shake,
brake pedal pulsation, or seat or floor vibration.
DIAGNOSIS:
1. Verify that all four (4) vehicle road tires are in good condition
2. Verify that the tire pressure in all four (4) vehicle road tires are set to 241 Kpa (35 psi).
3. Road test the vehicle in a safe environment on a flat and level road at a highway
speed of approximately 88 km/h (55 mph).
4. Without applying the vehicle brakes. Does the vehicle exhibit a drift to the left, right,
or both sides on a flat and level road? Record the direction of vehicle drift.
a. If YES >>> then perform the section of the Repair Procedure for “Front Tire
Cross-Switch and Front End Alignment”.
b. If NO >>> then proceed to the next step.
5. Apply the vehicle brakes. On a flat and level road, does the vehicle exhibit a shudder
or drift to the left, right, or both sides that is different than when the vehicle brakes are
not applied? Evaluate the vehicle when braking several times (during deceleration, at
the end of a stop, or during light, moderate, or hard stops).
NUMBER: 02-001-07 REV. A
GROUP: Suspension
DATE: March 31, 2007
a. If YES >>> then perform the section of the Repair Procedure for “Front Lower
Control Arm Bushings Replacement”.
b. If NO >>> then this bulletin does not apply.

So the thoughts, Seperated belt on tire (Dont hear of it with Michilins), Draging caliper causing rotor to warp, Rotor warpped due to heavy braking, Control arm bolts loose or control arm bushings bad.

Classic warped rotor. For what it's worth, ive always been told to do pads and rotors as a set. They wear to each other and when new is put with old, different contact points and wear. Rotors aren't that expensive to just replace with pads anyways..

Also check to make sure both sliders on the calipers are free

I typically get 3 to 1 on the brakepads to rotor, doing 1 to one is throwing away $. Its different if your warping your rotor by end of pad life.
