    Just thought someone might know what my problem might be . The brakes on my 1998 Chevy 4X4 HD when you come to a stop will pulsate I know its the anti brakes system but what would cause it .I just bought the truck with 72,000 and going to plow with it . My old truck which is a 1990 GMC 4X4 had 280,000 and started breaking down alot so time to get another truck . Thank any taker on my problem ?

    If it is happening while you are stopping, the rotors could be warped. You will know if the ABS kicks in, The break peddle will go to the floor, and it will feel like there is no break. Hope this helps.

    Yes the pedal goes to the floor

    Thanks for the reply I think this is the same problem they are having with alot of GM trucks.

    i had an 01 2500, and the rotors they use are junk, and at 72,000 miles sounds like they just need to be changed. I changed mine out at 30,000 miles. Hope i helped.

    if its 5mph or less and its pulsing the pedel. then its the gm bulliten for rust on wheel speed sensors in the front bearings. it pushes the sensor away from the tone ring. remove and clean then reinstall.
