Bent wheel, defective tyre, wheels out of balance, alignment and uneven tyre wear, defective or worn shock absorbers, excessive wear or lash in the steering/suspension components, binding front brake(s), front brake discs warped or excessive axial runout...

Most commonly it is wheel imbalance that is the culprit.

I would have your front brake rotors checked. A bad rotor will cause excessive vibration.

1998 Volvo s70 brakes shake


This problem is caused by the front brake rotors/disks being warped from heat, this causes the disk to run "out" excessively and you fell this as a shake, replace them or have them machined true again

When i press my brakes my wheel shakes, what is this problem?


The brake rotors are warped. This is a common occurrence. It can be caused by numerous things; excessive rotor wear (too thin), uneven brake pad wear, sticky brake calipers, riding the brake pedal causing excessive heat buildup in the rotors, and over-torque of lug nuts are just a few causes. Having the rotors checked and re-machined may help, but normally they require replacement. If you replace rotors, it is advisable to replace the brake pads at the same time to avoid a poor wear pattern.

When applying the brakes the vehicle shakes


The most common cause for this is warped brake rotors. You will notice it more going downhill or when you step on the brakes harder than usual. This can be caused by heavy braking and excess heat to the brakes. It can be alleviated by replacing the rotors or having a service department turn them to smooth them out.

Hello my steering wheel shakes braking from 60km/h


If I understand your question, it appears to be shaking only while braking and no other time. If this is correct, then you have warped brake rotors and/or rotors that are improperly torqued (which may result in warping). If the rotors are not either worn or warped excessively, they MIGHT be brought back into spec by turning them on a brake lathe, otherwise you will have to replace them.

I have a 1991 chevy lumina( euro) I installed rotors and front brake pads on it and sometimes the front end shimmies and shakes when I apply the brakes. I do have another question. But I 'am really hoping...


Warped rotors will always shake when on the brakes. You say sometimes, so I would look into tires out of round or out of balance. Also, take a good look for any loose front end parts or excessive play.

WHEN I APPLY BRAKES FRONT END SHAKES


A few possibilities
1. Front disc's may be warped
2. Rear drums may be out of shape
Easy way to check gently pull the handbrake lever when going forward if the drums are out of shape you will feel vibration through the lever.
3. Front wheel bearings may have excessive play
4. Suspension component(s) worn
wishbone bushes are a common failiure on Escort's
Hope this helps
Best wishes

While heavily applying the brakes at high speed the truck shakes.


If the front of the truck is doing all the shaking then the front brakes are doing all the stoppong. You need to check the rear brakes and change if neccessary. If they do not need to be changed then you should adjust them accordingly. I hope this helps. Don.t forget to rate my answer, thanks.
