pontiac sunfire 1999 shaking when pressing the brakes

Asked by Oct 30, 2011 at 11:05 PM about the 1999 Pontiac Sunfire

Question type: Maintenance & Repair


My oncle just bought a 1999 pontiac sunfire and it as a problem that we can't figure out. When you press the brakes on pavement more then on a dirt road it shakes alot on the driver side. So this is what we tried so far:

-first thing we changed was the rotor
-grease up the caliper to make sure it moves back and forth
-changed the hub with the bearing
-changed the drive axle
-changed abs sensors
-disabled abs to see
-changed the strut
-changed both control arm bushings on that side.

Please any help would be appreciated, we're out of ideas.

well its like this you done one side you may as well do the other side , because it a waste of money just to change every thing sorry,look put a rotor on the other side with new pads an you will more then likely fix',let me an i did noticed that you didn't list brake pads so go ahead an put them on both sides
