Default Brake Help!!!

I just recently acquired a 1992 Ford Ranger and it has an issue with the brakes and didn't know if anyone else has encountered the same. When I apply the brakes at any speed the truck shakes (like as if it has bad rotors or if it has ABS in the front) and it appears to slightly lock up one of the wheels.

I recently disassembled both front wheel assemblies and inspected the bearings, replaced bearing seals, replaced rotors, brake pads, tested the calipers to verify the fluid is getting to the caliper and returning to the reservoir, new tires and flushed the brake fluid and problem still exist. I did notice the radius arm bushings are worn out and plan to replace them in the next few days. If that isn't it I'm at a loss..

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

check the runout on the rotors to see if they are warped.

now and then i read about brake lines themselves causing similar issues, typically lockup. something about a blockage or an inner liner sluffing off and blocking flow back to MC

Thanks Roscoe for the information. I did a runout on the rotors and found to be around .002, I went ahead and replaced with new and the problem still exist.

Thanks for the feed back. I replaced the drivers side brake line to see if the it corrected the problem. However the problem still exist. I'm currently checking the back brakes and finding that the wheel cylinder is not working properly. I also went ahead and ordered new axle pivot bushings due to the wear and play in the suspension. Maybe that has something to do with the problem as well.

I had weird problems with jittering and locking up on the rear drums. Usually coincided with rain. Anyway, I replaced the drums, liners, hardware, and cylinders. I can't describe how much better everything is meow lol
