I don't have specific info for your model so il opt out and see if anyone else can help

Expert:  gomi_otaku replied 1 year ago.

you say your "brakes are good"- what makes you say that? Because you can stop OK? I replace brakes every day because of this very issue, the rotors heat up and get warped, the more you drive the more pronounced it feels.

The axle shafts are not going to cause an oscillation- maybe a vibration, but you'll hear a lot of noise before that.

Hi, My name is*****'m happy to help you. During our conversation, I may be presenting you with different things to try, and ask you some Questions to get a better understand of the issue so I can answer your question properly. So stick with me to the end, and I am sure we should be able to get this issue resolved for you!

I have seen the back part of the lower control arms bushings fail on these cars which can produce vibration in the front when driving and when braking. So I would look into having the Front Control Arms rear bushings checked. When those bushings fail, it allows the wheel to move more than it should which is can cause vibration.

I would have that checked and if you have any more questions on this, please feel free to return back and ask.

If you are satisfied with my help, please Rate me. I hope I have provided you with Excellent Service.

Thanks Jay!
