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, replaced front brake hoses and flushed the brake fluid, new tires and also replaced the radius arm bushings due to them being worm out. After all that the problem still exist..

I'm currently inspecting and rebuilding the rear drum brakes as well as will be replacing the worn out axle pivot bushing. If that isn't it I'm at a loss..

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Welcome to the forum

Nothing specific to Rangers on description of problem

Reads like you have checked or replaced most "suspects"

Generally speaking if you feel vibration in the steering wheel first it is brakes or wheel bearings or ball joints and tie rod ends

If its not steering wheel specific then check for broken mounts, engine, trans, front and rear axles, and rear brakes
