Default New Rotors Installed / Shaking from the rear

About a few months ago, February I think, I installed new brake rotors which are cross drilled and slotted and new brake pads which are ceramic. However, when I hit the brakes the truck tends to shake from the rear end. The truck has been doing this before I swapped out the rotors and brake pads. Has anyone else had this issue?

I've never experienced this. Any shaking or vibration I've experienced with the brakes was in the front and due to a loose caliper, worn pads, a warped rotor, etc....

I'd check the caliper to make sure it's tight, check caliper operation (one person pushes brake pedal while another verifies operation), pull your pads and inspect them, check rotor run out.

If you eliminate the brakes as the root cause, move on to checking the rest of the suspension fasteners to make sure it's all tight.

Have you inspected/replaced your rear shocks?

No, I have not replaced my rear shocks. Right now my truck is sitting at just over 61,000 miles. Right now I am trying to gather the money to get the Bilstien Shocks. But I know I am in dire need of shocks all around.

That may be part of the problem but I can't be sure.

Just throwing out ideas here, but could a worn u-joint or pinion bearing cause this? It could still be functional, but the momentum pressing forward when on the brakes could compress a failing junction and cause this. When you crawl underneath to check out the suspension, you might grab the driveshaft and make sure it is tight with no slop.
