Default Problems right before stopping

Question for the experts out there, I have about 86,000 miles on my SLT Hemi, I bought it used so I can't say for sure what's been done to it, but have had it for about 9 months now.

The issue I'm having is when I slow down, if I come to a stop slowly, the last little bit it starts to chug a little. It feels like a warped rotor almost, only I know that they are all good because I just rotated all the tires and checked them all out. Any ideas what else might be causing this? I'm debating taking the tires off again and having the rotors looked at a little more closely, but wanted to see if there might be other ideas out there. thanks

What do you mean by "you checked out the rotors when you rotated the tires"? If they are warped you won't see it with your eye... you'd need to take them off the truck and put them on a brake lathe and measure the runout. I would bet it's the rotors.

I have a mechanic friend who looked at them after we pulled them off. I assume he knows what he's doing. Also, I've gone from stopped and lightly let off the brakes and don't notice the chugging then, which led me to believe it's not the brakes as well. Wasn't sure though if I would notice that way or not.

Unless they were put on a lathe and checked with a dial indicator you won't be able to tell that they're out. It doesn't take much for them to cause surging problems. You generally don't feel it lightly letting off the brakes either.... Obviously I can't confirm this as I haven't driven your truck but I'd still be checking the rotors properly before anything else.

^I agree^

Rotors are somewhere between difficult ads impossible to diagnose with the naked eye. They're more apt to be diagnosed with the vehicle moving. What you're describing is an accurate description of rotors that are slightly warped, glazed, or have a hot spot in them.

If you have a digital thermometer (lazer) you can check the rotor's temperature and check for a spot on the rotor that is holding more heat than the rest of the rotor.
