Hard vibration off and on with braking, replaced both front wheel hubs and ABS light on
replaced front hubs, and disconnected ABS from hubs with no change. Ball-joints seem good, tie-rods have slight play.Had rotor resurfaced no change

Yes, I am still waiting for an answer.
Greetings and welcome to Just Answer. My name is Mark. The fact that you had your brake rotors refinished, shouldn't cause you to eliminate this area. Reading your post, you state this vibration is "with" braking. Therefore the only culprit is your brake area. You do not state make and model, therefore I have no way of knowing whether you have 4-wheel disc or disc/drum combo. The correct way to diagnose this is to first make sure all 4 of your brake calipers, (if you have 4-wheel disc) are free, and the caliper pistons do indeed move freely in and out. Next would be to make sure all 4 of you caliper slides move freely and there are no parts "hanging" up. Next with the wheels off, would be to actually measure the brake rotor thickness and lateral run-out. You will secure a dial mic to a stationary part, and then secure you mic to the surface of the brake rotor. Turning the rotor by hand, you can measure the lateral runout.

sorry, 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette. Ok, the vibration varies with how hard the stop and speed. More vibration with speed and sometimes the depending on the braking the vibration is less.
Okay, ... you should have drums in the back. In 2000, they were notorious for leaking wheel cylinders. You should remove your rear brakes and make sure your wheel cylinders aren't leaking and you have brake fluid on those rear shoes. Again, read the above post and with speed, it is usually the rear. You might have some warped or bent drums. Otherwise, make your measurements as suggested.
