Having some issues I have a 2011 Chevy Colorado lt extended cab 3.7l. I replaced brakes all around but I’m still having vibration in my steering wheel it’s worse now. Please let me know what’s going on

Try rotating the tires and see if it moves. Did you replace the rotors? Is the vibration constant across all vehicle speeds?

Greetings and welcome.

Another thing that get's missed is tire balancing.

Yup I did rotors and drums when I’m stoping 50 and up it likes to vibrate and the car hops as well. I know if there warped or the caliper boot is damage it could cause the vibration so I’m going to look at that

...and rotating the tires doesn't shift the vibration front/rear? Make sure the wheel surface that contacts the rotors/drums is clean/oxide free. A caliper causing this would be unusual unless it is not fully letting go and overheating the rotors. Warped wheels and tires with broken guts (look for bumps/bubbles) do this too and can make it through a wheel balancing.
