90DesertTanYJ As mentioned, warped discs are the most common reason for braking vibration. One reason they warp is when you hit water when the discs are hot. My 93 GMC truck was the worst for this. About every 10K miles I had to chuck the pads and do a light turn on the discs. Problem solved.

I pulled the drums off and they aren't cracked. The vibration is still there and I'm not sure where else to turn at this point.

Bad Vibration When Braking

I've started noticing a rather hard vibration when I try to come to a complete stop. My jeep will stop but the vibration keeps getting worse. I'm usually pretty good a figuring these things out but I'm at a loss. Thanks!
