Re: Questions About My Brakes

When i step on my brake it occasionally rattles as well, sort of like if the ABS was activated.

Is that normal?

that's your abs kicking in from the rear axle becoming unsettled a bit.
Bostonian's right guys. The ABS sees the wheels turning at different rates with the brakes applied and is kicking in. This happens when you hit the brakes and the wheels are suffering different amounts of friction against the road due to bouncing a bit. It's happened to me in the FJ and other trucks on uneven pavement and usually indicates that I am going too fast. Slow down and it will be fine.
