Question about 2001 Chrysler 300M
My car started shaking for maybe a month or so, and we figured my breaks and or rotors were warped.. so.. my boyfriend changed my front breaks and rotors on my 2001 chrysler 300m and the steering shakes worse than what it did before. we are thinking auto zone gave us the wrong rotors? when taking off the old rotors, these new ones are way different. they seem like they dont go on as tight? we need help!
If they don't look the same Than they are not the same. Thre are two different rotors for the fronts for this car. One is for vehicles with 15" wheels and the other is for the performance package pwhich would have 16 & 17 inch wheels. Take the new rotors back along with the old ones and they should be able to figureout what you need. It is possible for new rotors to be out of round and require turning with a brake lathe in order to make them true. More times than not it is not necessary but it can happen. Just in case the right rotors are installed and you still get a vibration, Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Sounds like your front brake discs are faulty, causing the oscillation.
They require, if possible? skimming, or renewal, along with the brake pads.
You describe the classic symptoms of this fault.
Good Luck !

SOURCE: 1996 Chrysler LHS shakes
A bad motor or trans mount could be the cause which allows the engine and trans assembly to shift mor to one side on a turn which changes the the axle length and lessens pressure on the CV joint causing the wobble. I mounts check ok then it is most likely a worn CV joint.
