    Brake Shuddering!!!???

    I have an 06 tr, and my brakes shudder, or atleast i think its the brakes. it happens right after i really romp on the gas and then brake, but then after that even slight braking causes a tremendous shudder in the steering wheel and the brake pedal which can be felt throughout the car. The same problem was happening on my outback as well, so i replaced the brake pads and rotors, and it still happens. this leads me to believe that the problem on the tr isnt the brakes... if anyone has any ideas that would be great. thanks for the help!

    So your only getting the vibration in your steering wheel when you brake? Not at cruise speed or anything? bad wheel bearings have been known to cause vibrations when braking but you would usually hear that also.. How many miles are on the WRX? I will say this we get alot of WRX's with brake pulsations due to the "sporty" nature of the car and the customers ability to "romp" on it as you put it..than rail on the brakes...If you don't hear a wheel bearing and youve done a thorough visual inspection/ made sure everything under there is secure/ bet is you need front brakes ( pulsations from the rear brakes can usually be felt in the seat)..If you do decide to put front brakes on it I would recommend replacing the rotors even if they are in spec to machine believe me if you machine them they warp even quicker...Ive had to put new rotors on WRX's before with under 30k miles due to the fact they have been resurfaced so many times already due to a pulsation issue...Just my opinion of course...
