Default Bounces when brakes are applied

I have a 2002 Super Crew F-150 4X4 that has a 6 suspension and 3 body lift. When I apply my brakes at any speed the truck bounce until I take my foot off the brake or when the truck stops. the bouncing feels like it is coming from the rear of the truck Please advice.

Thanks,

Rob

Thinking like Aspen, rotors need machining.

the brake pedal does not have vibration, it seems like the bed is hopping

You and I are in the same boat. Rear brakes for sure. I'm doing mine on Wednesday. New pads and rotors.

i changed the shocks about 2 months ago. i have not done anything with the sway bars. i found some of the 3" body lift to be loose, could this have an affect?

thanks for you input!!!!!!!!

Pedal vibration is usually from out of round drums not warped rotors. The warpage will make the chassis shake. If its the front, you will feel it in the steering wheel.
