Question about Cars & Trucks
Wheel shaking feels like tires are really bad
When does it shake? Low speed, off brake... Bad tires. High speed off brake... Balance tires. High speed on brakes... Rotors. Trucks and AWD can be transfer case, diff, ujoints, out of balance driveshaft and tires. Have your car lifted and walk around it, always check tires, ballpoints, tie rode ends

You need to have the front end inspected for damaged steering components. Check your Tie Rod ends, A frame bushings and ball joints to make sure there isn't excessive wear or lose connections. If all of that is in good working order Drive down the road with a friend in the next lane over and have them look to see if either wheel in bouncing. If either wheel is bouncing you need to replace the struts. they are replaced in pairs, both sides. The front end will need to be aligned after you do this.

I don't know if the brakes dragging would cause the shaking or not but I will ask a question or two.
Does the car steer to the right or left when you apply the brakes? This would be caused by any leaking fluid or if one side is dragging heavily. This is because when the brakes heat up too much they begin to fade and loose there stopping power. If one side is dragging the car will pull to the other side when you apply the brakes.
You need to make shure that the brakes are clean and dry. Free from all grease or break fluid.
If a wheel is dragging the rotor will overheat and will cause "Blueing" of the rotors or they will look like they have small cracks in them.
Also did the shaking start imediatly after all the work or did it take a while?

The front end of the vehicle has several parts that cause the front end to shake. Have you had the front end checked for bad tie rod ends, That is the most common problem.Another thing when does it shake? If it shakes while applying the brakes it could be the rotors need to be turned or it could be both the tie rod ends or the rotors.
