Jiggles?

When I use the brakes at any speed over say 35 the Jeep has a fast bounce. You can feel it through the whole thing. The steering wheel doesn't jerk from side to side or anything everything just jiggles. It starts as soon as I touch the brakes light or hard. I can engine brake and ride in neutral and everything is fine. I checked all the steering and suspension and everything is tight. All the lugs are tight. I'm just not sure if I should look new rotors or wonder about tire balancing. I have 15k miles on a 2006. Everything is stock. The tires are the originals too. Thanks in advance for any advice.

does it feel like there is a rythym to it? I am curious if your rotors are warped

yup, warped rotors (and possibly drums...)

can you feel it in the steering wheel? if so rotors.(front brakes)

if not drums.(rear brakes).
you may have both warped and not feel it in the steering wheel.

now stop calling me jiggles.

Yet again the subject of a post fails to match the headline.

Agreed. I was very disappointed.

^^ hey, it DOES jiggle. Unfortunately, it's my Jeep doing the jiggling lol. Yeah, I feel it in the pedal too. I can feel it in the steering wheel as well but it doesn't go side to side. It's more of a bounce or jiggle. Yes, there's a sort of rhythm to it too. Thanks for the quick responses!

Haha! No sweat! I really was liking where it was going . I'm picking up some rotors and pads tomorrow. They couldn't get them in today. I'm thinking everything will be fine after. I'll post the results.
