98 V70 - My car develops a vibration during braking but only when the car is loaded with passengers, 3+, but does not occur when I drive alone. Just had the ABS module refurbished 2 months ago. No warning lights appear, drives straight, ABS engages when I perform panic stops as a test (no other cars or people in the vicinity). Anyone with a hypothesis?<br>Thanks.

Warped rotors and maybe bent wheels. It's just more obvious when you carry the extra weight.<p>Cheers,<br>Prospero

They are probably warped on the rear not the front. The front rotors are vented and the rears and solid so they tend to warp first.
