SOURCE: Shake in steering wheel
I believe you need your disk brake rotors turned to be true again or have them replaced. Whe you use your brakes a lot and kit puddles of cold water then it will warp the rotors which will cause the violent shaking. You may not feel it in the brake pedal even if it is warped rotors. If you don't think you have warped rotors then you should be very careful driving it because it will probably be in the steering sector arm or the idler arm on the steering shaft.

The usual cause for this is because the brake rotors on your Stratus have warped slightly. In the old days, it was easy enough to simply change the brake pads and then have the rotors "turned" (machined) so they turn true. Nowadays, finding a place to have your rotors machined isn't all that easy, though you may just get lucky. It's usually around $10/rotor. Replacing the rotors sometimes seems to be the only option. You'll be able to find them at Advance Auto Parts, Auto Zone, etc., and usually run around $30/each. Of course, while you have the brake calipers removed to remove the rotors, you may want to go ahead and put a new set of brake pads on there as well. You'll notice an immediate difference in braking once you get back on the road, without all that incessive shaking to a stop!
I hope this helps! :)
