Dodge Complaint - Dodge 1500 frontend shaking while braking
The front end of the truck shook violently when braking. This started after the dealership fixed the bearing recall at 30k miles. I had the rotars turned then replaced with new ones. I then replaced the tires. I had a front end alignment done. The problem remained. The dealership told me several times all 4 rotars were warped due to driving thru high water needed to be replaced and my back brakes are gone and need to be replaced Hellooooo. We have had no rain. We are in a drought. My grass crunches under my feet. My husband took the original rotars, that came with the truck, to be turned. He then reinstalled the rotars. Still shook when braking. The brake pads are good. After removing the rotars again, took a wire grinding wheel attached to a cordless drill and cleaned the hub, rotar on both sides and inside the wheel where everything attaches. Put the wheel back on and the problem is gone. The Dodge dealership told me the cost to fix the repairs needed were going to be around $1500.00 to $2000.00. My cost with my do-it-yourself hubby. $2.15 for the wire wheel to hook to the drill.... Yeah we splurged and bought the top of the line wire wheel. By the way...The rotars were not warped in the front or the back. And the back brakes are fine. The dealership is giving false information on the needed repairs and charging excessive amounts.
