Question about 1996 Pontiac Bonneville SE CA Value
1996 Pontiac Bonneville SE I've replaced rotors ,new tires but the front end shakes when I apply the breaks but rides smooth at all speeds it .I've even replaced the drums in the back.
I hope you have found the problem, but if you haven't I have a question. Do you live in the rust belt?? If so, clean the rust off of the back of the rotors and the hub. When the wheel is mounted on there and if there is a significant amount of rust under the rotor it wont allow the rotor to seat flat on the hub, causing excessive runout. If not, check the wheel balance and condition of the inner and outer tie rod ends. If there is excessive play in the tierod ends (inner or outer) it can accentuate an imbalance condition and/or a slight amount of runout from the rotor/hub/wheel assembly. By the way, you replaced the rotors. Are they of good quality or are they the cheapest ones you could find?? The problem could still be the rotors if you bought the "least expensive" ones.

Check for runout in your wheel bearing hubs. You can also hit your e brake lightly and see if it shakes then. If it does, it is in the rear rotors which will also warp.
