Question about 1997 Oldsmobile 88
When traveling at highway speeds my car will shimmy when I start braking on ramps, at traffic lights or during emergency stops. At these times the car makes an odd noise like the car is grinding to a halt. Is this all brakes or brakes and something else?
Sounds like warped rotors and worn pads or a worn front end or both. Most shops will check this for free I believe. If it were something like wheel bearings, or rear end you would likely notice this at lower speeds as well with out the brakes being applied. So the direct answer to your question is "Maybe, maybe not". Gee, that was helpful was'nt it?
