brake issue

Asked by Apr 13, 2016 at 04:38 PM about the 2000 Chevrolet Suburban LS 1500 4WD

Question type: General

I have a 2000 Chevy suburban 1500 ls 4x4 5.3 v8
with a vacuum brake booster. Now I am having a
problem with my brakes after I had to replace the
front driver side hub assembly and after I did I
noticed that when turning left and applying the
brake the brake pedal would start pulsating and
not allowing me to press the brake pedal down to
stop the suburban and the brakes do not work
when this happens this does not happen all the
time but enough that I refuse to drive the suburban
so my question is this is it my brake booster or
brake master cylinder or something else? I have
also replaced the driver side from brake pad as
well as the hub assembly and bleed the brakes
multiple times! Please help I miss my truck lol

okay...replace both left and right rotors...and the calipers equipped with new pads...you will know you've done it right the first time you use it~

you know it's never right to service only one side~ you are askin' for a accident due to fishtail...etc~

But that still does not explain why it is doing what it is doing and it's not fishtailing none of the brakes work when this happens

got drums on the back...perhaps those need an inspection too~ ...your pedal tells you...speaking of which the reservoir should be topped up...if it ain't, there will be pad wear~ at the shop (parker and telegraph -1996-98) we would replace EVERYthing...is why I suggest new rotors and calipers...Master Cylinder seems to be holding it's own~ perhaps an alignment with the new brakes might save you some tire wear~

Wow just the fact that you are telling me to replace everything I'm sorry to say I would not be going to your shop sir the back and front rotors as well as pads was replaced not even 1000 miles ago and as stated I belkd the brakes so the fluid is obviously topped off with dot 3 and there is no pulling what so ever when going down the road my alignment is perfect and so are my tires! So with that said I may not be a certified mechanic but I do know my way around a vehicle pretty good

well want them to drive out of there...could simply turn the rotors...yep~ if confused...replace everything...go to pick-n-pull if you got no money~ wish I could have been of some help to you...was poor as hell and basically learned by gettin' beat down...as a Sunday mechanic we had no machine shop to turn flywheels ON sunday...in Berkeley everything flies~ at least I paint now~

I'm a human smog-check machine...the nose comes in handy when checking the condition of the combustion~ Catalytic converters are mandatory in California...and the amount of C02 and 02 and N02 tells you how pollutin'...for example a VW beetle produces about 2000 times more pollutants then say a Honda~ we need to go electric..everyone~

You may want to recheck the hub assembly to make sure everything is tight and the caliper bolts are also tight. Seen it many times forget to tighten caliper bolts.
