My Toyota Tundra always shutters badly when braking on a long down hill grade. Seems that the disc rotors are undersized. Is this problem occurring on all 2002 series Tundra's. This truck only has 45k miles and is garage kept.
Warped rotors can happen on any model or make, most time it is because of over torqued lug nuts.
Swap your rotors out with drilled and slotted rotors from Power Stop.
Or upgrade the front brakes to Brembo, Wilwood, TRD etc.
def warped rotors
New quality rotors and new quality pads (not the cheap stuff) and you should be good to go. Also ONLY torque the wheel lugs by hand using a torque wrench and your warped rotor problems likely will not come back. The pneumatic gun wrench is a brake rotor's worst enemy. I do not allow any tire shops to zip my lug nuts on with an air wrench.
Good advice Bob. I have never had warped rotors due to over torquing but tires shops cross threaded a lot of lug nuts until I put a stop to them zipping them on.
Tire shops are the worst about using air ratchets, not doing so would cut into their profits and take too long.
I have a shop I trust now but I used to stand there and make them thread them on by hand. One shop cross threaded 5 on my front wheels. I did make them fix them but what a pain.
