Hey how are you

I would want to inspect the rear pads and also the front rotors ,for any evidence of run in the disc , does your steering wheel vibrates when you are braking and coming to a stop ?

how does the e brake feels, is it grabbing good when engaged ?

the front and rear caliper hardware needs checking ,we usu lay grease them in case the caliper pistons not backing out all the way of the brake pads which will damage the dick and give us vibration or drag ?

Please let me know

Thank You

No steering wheel vibration. brakes grabbing. ..just a slight...very slight jerk
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 2 months ago.

Only after I come to a full stop
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 2 months ago.

Based on what you describing the rear pads will be the first possibility

but when u take and have it checked ,let them inspect caliper operation and brake system hardware pieces ,will be my advice on it

but sound you just need rear pads, I would do that soon ,so it will not damage the rotor disc

good luck with it
