Shakes really bad from 55 to 70 mph

First & Foremost, If Smell Of Hot Brakes, Remove One Or Both Front Tires, Use A Flash Light & Look At Both Brake Pads From The Top Side, Check For Thickness Of Pad. Remove Brake Caliper, 2-13mm Bolts, Top & Bottom, Should Slide Up & Off Of Rotor & Brake Pads, Maybe With A Little Light Prying.After Caliper Is Removed, Remember Those Two Bolts You Removed To Remove Brake Caliper, Those 2 Bolts Attached To Brake Sliders, They Should Slide In & Out Very Smoothly, If They Do Not You Will Have To Replace The Bridge (The Whole Piece Those Sliders Are Attached To, 2 Bolts On The Back Side, Will Come Right Off After Bolts Are Removed. Sometimes You Can Bring Them Back To Life By Cleaning Them Out With Carb Spray Then Compressed Air & Ceramic Silicone Grease (Purple Pack From Advanced Auto Counter) Make Sure Both Pieces Are Clean Before Placing Back Together. If They Are Stuck Inside Bridge Piece I Suggest Replace Caliper Mount Or Bridge. (Some Parts Stores Call It Different Names) When Doing A Brake Job Always Check Your Caliper Release Pins & Make Sure They Slide Easily, If The Caliper Does Not Return That Could Be The Smell Of Overheating Brake Pads & Vibration, Also, Your Caliper Will Not Return & Will Wear Top Or Bottom Side Of Pad Very Badly. Good Luck! Probably A Good Idea While You Have It Up On Jack Stands To Pull Up On Bottom Of Tire & Feel If There Is Any Play Or Movement Up & Down, Should Be No Movement, If There Is Movement Your Lower Or Upper Ball joint Could Be Excessively Worn, Should Be Replaced & Realigned.

How to replace the front brake pads

    Calipers With Guide Pins
  1. Step 1 Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery. Remove the wheel. Using an open wrench hold the lower guide pin. Remove the bolt that secures the caliper.
  2. Step 2 Pivot the caliper up and then suspend it from the frame using mechanic's wire. To remove the pads, slide the pads straight out.
  3. Step 3 Using a C-clamp, compress the caliper piston into the bore. Insert the new pads by removing the mechanics wire and pivoting the caliper back into it's place.
  4. Step 4 Clean the old bolt and apply thread locking compound. If the old bolt can not be used install a new bolt. Hold the guide pin using a back-up wrench when tightening the bolt. Using a torque wrench, torque the bolt to 26 foot/pounds. Install the wheels. Add oil to the master cylinder reservoir. Reconnect the negative battery cable to the battery.
    Calipers With Sleeves and Bushings
  5. Step 1 Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery. Remove the wheel. Remove the bolt that secures the caliper to the carrier.
  6. Step 2 Push the caliper up and pivot the caliper bottom out of the carrier. Remove the pads and the anti-rattle springs.
  7. Step 3 Install the new pads by putting the anti-squeal pads onto the caliper and then sliding the new pads onto the carrier. Put the caliper top back into place. Remove the mechanics wire and push the caliper up so that it pivots back into place and the bottom.
  8. Step 4 Clean the caliper mounting bolts. Install the caliper mounting bolts and using a torque wrench, torque the bolts to 18 foot/pounds. Install the wheel. Add oil to the master cylinder reservoir. Reconnect the negative battery cable to the battery.

Rear brake caliper removal

I just did the rear caliper on my '95 Deville Concours and found that the caliper would not rotate enough to slide it off the top bolt. My solution was to remove the parking brake cable bracket bolt behind the caliper. This gave me the ability to rotate the caliper enough to get the caliper off of the brake pads and slide the caliper towards the inside of the car.
