2000 GMC Yukon XL 1500 SLT 8 Cyl 5.30L
Why do my breaks skip when coming to a stop only on dry surface
My 2000 Yukon Xl slt breaks are about 40% of the time slipping when I come to an almost stop not when I break while driving but only when I come to a complete stop. I went into a dealership and they told me it was the wheel bearing and that it will cost about $600- he said the parts alone are around $400. The guy at the dealership said he had the exact problem I am talking about so he was certain it's the wheel bearing. I am a female and wonder if I am being taken advantage of. I went online and saw that I could get wheel bearings for under $200 for both front sides. Now my question is, is the problem the wheel bearing or could it be something else? I live in New Hampshire where compared to Massachusetts prices things are significantly cheaper. Please help I don't want to have to put $600+ into fixing my truck and finding out the problem was something else.
Need more information - is this an issue with the ABS (anti lock braking) system? If yes, is this why the front wheel bearing is recommend to be replaced?
