When i'm driving in the freeway and step on the breaks the steering wheel start to shake, is the bearing wearing out/


warped rotors are the first things to look at,I would change the rotors/pads first,as you would normally change these at 50k anyway.and if this cures it, its less to do at your major service.....the clue is "when you put your foot on the brake"
