99 1500 silverado 4 wheel drive 160,000 miles brake pedal shudders intermitly, feels like the piston in the master cyl. is hanging up. All the brake lines were replced this year, I live in the rustbelt.


I would say that you have a rotor issue. The rotor is the part onto which the brake pads press and apply braking force. You may have front wheel disk brakes or all wheel disk brakes. I would take the vehicle to a reputable brake specialist and have them check the rotors for wear and a condition called "run out". If the rotors are not worn past the manufacturers specs, you can have them machined which will bring them back to true and prevent the shakes. If the rotors are worn, then replace them as worn rotors can shatter causing total loss of braking and control which can be dangerous.. Do this as soon as you can...

Remove the front disc rotor


The rotor and hub assembly are held together by the studs,you must first remove the 4-wheel drive hub assembly,then the wheel bearing nuts,and pull the hub and rotor off as a unit. Next lay it(back down) on a piece of wood, using a drift punch drive the studs out. Turn it over ,lay it(face down) on a block of wood, line the new stud splines up with the grooves in the hub and drive them in with the punch and reassemble. A set of dentist style picks will be helpful with the clip in the 4wd hub and a 4 lug 4wd nut wrench will be needed.

Remove caliper and nut to axle should come of with a little help of a rubber hammer. Knock bolts out from the front and drive new ones in from the back. You can use a lugnut with the flat side down to help pull them in and a hammer to help. Hope this helps.
