Brake Issues After 33" Tire Install - Help!

Hey guys so my first mod was getting 33" tires then a 4" rough country lift. In the mean time I just noticed when I come to a complete stop the brake peddle moves - kind of like the ABS system is kicking in without any water/snow....

I searched and couldn't find anything. Please help this is so annoying - oh and take a look at the new tires!

Thanks

The brake is pulsing? Or going down? If it's pulsing while braking, you probably have a warped rotor. If the pedal is slowly moving down, you have an issue with the booster or master cylinder.

In that image, do you have the 33's on? Doesn't look like they are that tall. But a nice looking TJ.

It's pulsing like you would feel when the ABS kicks in so guess I'll have to look at getting new rotors - which may warped more with the bigger tires....

Yeah thats with the 33" tires - just had them put on by discount tire.....
