I have a recurring issue with my 06 Dakota shaking when I apply the brakes. I thought the issue was over. Not! It is back.
I have replaced drums twice from autozone, once from napa. Rear brake shoes, autozone. Front rotors twice from autozone. Front pads, autozone.
Had the front end checked and everything is good. Had all 4 tires balanced.
Can't figure out what is going on!! It seems like it is really noticeable when I am braking down hill or when I am braking hard.
Don't know where to go from here. Mechanic friend is coming by tomorrow to take it for a ride. HELP!

My friend stopped today and we took it for a ride. He used the e-brake to isolate if it was front or back causing the issue. No doubt it was in the rear.
Keep in mind I replaced drums twice from Autozone and no change. Replaced rear shoes and no change. Saturday I returned to Autozone and got a refund for the drums. Went to Napa and purchased set number 3 and no change.
Reluctantly took the drums to local repair shop to have the drums turned.
Drum #1, 4 course cuts and 1 finish cut. Drum #2, 3 course cuts and 1 finish.
No shaking at all when braking on hill or anywhere else. Where the hell are they getting their parts from? Anyone else ever had this happen?
I've had the same issue repeatedly on the 2005 I used to have and currently on my 2011. Dealer has turned the front rotors two or three times and the rear drums too. Issue comes back a few months later.
Just crap design I guess. Am about to order some higher quality front rotors. Not sure what to do about the rear yet.
My buddy was having the problem with his '07 since new, especially under hard braking or going down steep hills He had it back to the dealer and shop that does all the work on his other vehicles. They both turned or replaced the rotors and pads and all said the same pretty much the same thing, its the nature of the beast.
In desperation he scraped the bottom of the bucket and asked me about it.
What is this Rear Brake test??? I have about 85,000 miles on my 05 and never touched the rear brakes.... I have bled and replaced front brake pads and put drilled and slotted rotors ti get rid of my shakes
