2001 Toyota Sequoia LTD, 115,000 miles, replaced cal & discs & steering rack bushings early last year. Lately after 20 to 30 minutes of hwy at 70mph touching the brakes to shave off 10 to 15mph causes heavy vibrations from the front brakes like the wheels aren't round. No lights, ABS or VSC, no noise from the ABS unit. Same in 2WD, 4WD, VSC on or off. Touch the brakes from 70mph and it feels like slowing/stopping on washboard??? Tech checked, no codes present .

Brakes function fine around town as does the ABS & VSC, alinement good.

    Washboard (up and downsensation)? Or shimmy (side to side vibration)?

    1. Check all four tires for correct tire pressure
    2. Did you replace all four rotors? Or just front? Sometimes over torqueing of lug nuts can warp rotors. Check all four for warp condition.
    3. Check steering idler arms for excessive looseness/play
