Tell you please help me?

Hello - to respond to your email question, we need a little more information regarding the problem with stopping your vehicle, and what work might have already been done. Since this is obviously a huge safety issue, perhaps an inspection by a mobile, professional mechanic, like YourMechanic, who can come to your location to inspect your truck, would be helpful. If so, I would recommend having a Brake Safety Inspection completed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to diagnose this problem, get an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.

Q: 97 4.6 t-bird, 287,000 miles runs great Ithought, 02 sensor causing rich condition etc

Q: There is a vibration in the front driver's side of the truck at 38-45 mph

Good diagnostic work! You've narrowed it to a specific speed range, not torque sensitive, and to a specific corner of the vehicle. I suspect an "out-of-round" tire that happens to be sensitive at 38-45 mph as you note. Beyond that,...
