    chassis "noise/vibration" when braking

    When I apply the brakes on my 94 DeVille (75k miles)
    there is a rapid "drumming" noise that is noticeable through the chassis. Not loud, just noticeable (this is a very quiet car)

    It almost sounds/feels like a warped rotor, but it doesn't change tempo at different speeds, as one would expect a rotor to do.......


    Is this the ASB system at work??

    If it is - there is no feedback of pulsing vibration through the brake pedal, like on a friends Honda Accord - but then again - this isn't an accord......

    Any input is gratefully acknowledged.

    Thanks

    Probably a rotor..... It may not always feel different... My rotors are warped a little, and it it always feels the same pulse......

    Yeah, I think it's a warped rotor.

    Or a bad tie rod end. I have seen that before on my 90' Coupe.
