Lately my Explorer will vibrate when braking at high speed (50+ mph). The vibration only occurs when braking and is only noticable when applying slight to moderate brake pressure. No vibration occurs when accelerating, only braking. I am unable to isolate if the source is the front or the rear.

Aany suggestions as to what may be the cause of the vibration.

You have warped rotors. Thats why you get the vibrations. do a search and you will find plenty of information.

Have you had the tires removed lately? Over tighnting lug nuts is the primary cause of warped rotors.
