Tech Question

Big Al Marciano, Torrington, CT , 1973 Dodge Dart Swinger 318

My front end shakes when I apply the brakes on my Dart. Allrotors etc have only about 1500 miles on them. This just starred this year.Do you have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Check to make sure there’s no slop in the linkage. Barring that, or even IFthat, have the rotors machined. Then, when reinstalling the wheels, torquethe lug nuts to 75-85 ft/lb. in a star pattern. Do this religiously each andevery time the wheels are removed and reinstalled.
