Thread: Brake Issues

  1. #1

    Default Brake Issues

    Hello everyone this is my first post.

    I am looking for help on some break issues. I have a 2005 Chevy Silverado 1500 and I lifted it 6 inches and put larger tires on it about 6-8 months ago. Recently I had to replace my break pads, rotors, and drums. After having all those replaced I am still having what sounds like grinding or maybe skipping. I took it back to the place I had them replaced and they redid everything with new break pads, rotors, and drums again. Still though I am having the issue.

    So my question is: Could the lift and larger tires eventually messed up my ABS and that's what is causing it? If so, could reprogramming the tire size in my car computer fix this issue? If you have any ideas please please let me know I am desperate and do not want to act before spending more money.

    Thank you

    It could be you ball joint(s). I had a lifted S-10 and my ball joints went bad a lot. I thought what sounded like a grinding coming from the front end was my brakes going bad as well, but when I took it to the shop they said it was the ball joints. It actually set off my ABS light which sounds weird, but the garage said that was normal once the ball joints went. I'd say take a look at them and see if that's it, especially with the lift added on.

    Hope this helps!

    Can you tell if the Grinding/Skipping noise coming from the front or the back of your truck, and does the Grinding/Skipping noise increase with your speed??

    The brakes should not grind just because the truck was lifted, but it MAY be the other suspension parts like the guys are saying.
