Hello my name is***** this occurs it is due to warped front rotors. If the rotors are warped then high speed braking will cause shaking. If the rotors are fine then it may have warped hubs. I hope this helps. If you need anything else please let me know.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
