Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Galant
It may be your rotors are worn.
The caliber bolt or bolts may also have become stuck, if this is the case your brakes may vibrate when you stopping the car. You may need a caliper repair kit, caliper grease, new pads and possibly new rotors.

One possible cause of vibrations in a car's wheel is an uneven tightening of the rotors. In that case, you should get yourself to a mechanic who knows how to tighten in a star pattern. This is an elementary concept that any mechanic worth his or her salt should know. Most will also have a torque stick to measure the tightness of the seal. Keep in mind that every car has its own standard torque specifications, which are generally printed on the rotor itself.
More often, a steering wheel that shakes when braking is caused by warped rotors, which your mechanic may be able to diagnose with a simple test -- that is, by spinning the rotors by hand to feel for imperfections. A rotor in good working order should move freely and make a complete revolution without any bumps or signs of resistance areas. If you or your mechanic does notice these issues, you've probably got yourself a rotor problem.
In all honesty either have a mechanic look at your brakes and possibly get your rotors and brake pads replaced.
