This due to warped brake rotors. One good indication is the violent shaking of the steering wheel ONLY when appling the brake pedal. Replace the brake rotors. They are very easy to replace so let me know if you need instructons to do so.

Shaking at 65 mph

try getting your tyres balanced, could be a loose wheel bearing (it would be making whining noise)

I have a 2000 Toyota Tundra - front end shimmys at speeds over 55 mph or braking at high speeds - could it be front tires need to be rebalanced, or front end realigned?

new tyres needed would be more the cause as they do deform with the sun in hotter climes ,and no doubt they are twisted if you look carefully

2001 Bonneville steering wheel shimmys very bad when you apply brakes at 50 mph.

99% of the time this condition is caused by out of round brake rotors. You will have to either have the rotors machined if they are thick enough or replace them. If you price them out you will find that machining the rotors will only save you maybe $10-20 each.

When the truck gets up to 60-65 mph it shakes real bad. and then when i hit the brakes the rear of the truck acts like it is bouncing. just replaced the front brake rotars last week and had tires checked...

do you feel any vibration when braking at lower speeds like 30? if any vibrations happen only when braking, fix those first. I suspect there is a rear brake problem. also verify that the driveshaft and universal joints are good.
