Question about 1998 Toyota Camry
This is caused by the front disk brake rotors being warped from heat and running out of true, the wobble of the warped rotors causes the wheel to shake when you apply the brakes, it is worse the higher the speed you apply them at. Have the front rotors machined flat again or just replace them.

Most likely warped front brake brake rotors. Chances are you can feel it at lower speeds too, but to a lesser degree... hope this helps.

Im pretty sure it has to do with a brake rotor that is not able to receive the stress from braking, simply, the rotor if grooved or warn will vibrate from the brake pads,,,,,,,,smoothe surface (brake pads) grabbimg the grooved rotor will definatly vibrate, hopefully not enough to decenegrate the pads...be careful

This car had just exact issue. After replacing front rotors (both sides) and brake pads - all nice and smooth

SOURCE: Shake in steering wheel
Hi! Although my collegue has pointed out the possibility of Discs being warped or out of true? Have you thought of the wheel balancing? also have you tried changing the rear wheels to the front? you may have a well imbalanced wheel or a Tyre with a side wall defective i.e. an Egg? (Buldge). Another problem on big tyres is they don't seat correctly, check the beading is settled in fully.
Hope this helps!

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.

have the rotors machined, shaking when braking is an indication of a warped rotor or drum, even though it may look ok, the rotor can still be warped, it would be a good idea to have the rotors/drums machined and new pads installed if the old ones are 4-5/32'nds or lower. that should take care of your shaking when braking issue
