    Brakes Shudder as if disc are warped - sometimes

    Okay, I need help on my braking system. For a while my truck has been acting like my front disc were warped, but only sometimes. I feel it in the brake pedal. There are times when it won't shudder at all, so I've done the following, but still no solution. The list of items below were not done all at once, but in that order.

    2002 F-250 RWD 7.3L Lariat Crew SRW (2" Daystar front leveling spacers)
    1. Turned Rotors along with new greased bearings
    2. replaced tie-rods & ball joints
    3. replaced I-beam bushings
    4. PowerStop Rotors and brakes
    5. repack bearings
    6. Rotated and balanced tires
    7. bled braking system


    I'm going to flush my power steering fluid in the near future to see if it helps. Any help or suggestions? Do you think my rear abs sensor could be causing this issue? Does my truck have a RABS? If so, should I bleed it also?

    Thanks in advance.

    Found the issue. It was the rear rotors.

    I believe the reason for "sometimes" is that the slide pins were in need of a cleaning and were sticking sometimes.
