Problem with brakes/suspension

Any issues relating to suspension, steering and brakes.

I have a 91 8v caly with the following prob

during braking my pedal shudders and the brakes don`t err brake 100%
this only happens occationaly and it seems to be connected with when the suspension is traveling.

The dics are not warped (had them checked) everything looks tops

but there is no visual reason why this happens?

Can anyone help? or should I get rid of this car and get a newer one? [img]/biggrin.gif[/img]

thanks in advance

ou sure it's not your ABS cutting in? Are you braking quite hard?

it happens with light or heavy braking.

its a metalic clunky noise for a second or two then stops

I got my mate to plug his diagnosis tool in and I found my left front ABS sensor was faulty.

So I cleaned it and the brakes are fine thanks guys.
