1995 Chevrolet Blazer LT 6 Cyl 4.3L

Brakes

Hard vibration when braking, pulls to the right, (replaced hub assembly), eating through brake pads, warped new rotors

I've replaced the front brakes 3 times since Sept 2009, need them again. Replaced rotors in January 2010; need again. Changed calipers in January also.; although, not needed.
Was told it could be the brake hoses. How many hoses are on the right side of a 1995 Chevy Blazer 4wd? How hard is it to replace them.

Check the following for possible causes of vibration

Check tyres for alignments and wear

Check disc rotor or hub for warping

Check axle bearing failure

Check defective drive shaft U joints

Siezed calliper or wheel cylinder on one side – overhaul or renew if piston or cylinder is worn

Contaminated linings on one side – renew (both sides)

Normally, only one hose connecting from master cylinder to disc brake cylinder

if the right front piston caliper compresses ok when changing your brakes,then its allmost %100 guarenteed the brake hose has collapsed inside.i would change that and make sure it comes with new copper washers for the banjo fitting.
