    Default steering wheel shaking when braking

    in the past few weeks when i brake quite sharply the steering wheel judders and shakes from side to side, theres no wobble when driving at speeds just when im braking.

    i changed the front pads about a month ago and the rears have plenty left on

    any ideas ?????????????

    Sounds like a warped disc.

    ive just replaced the suspension top mount bearings, spring sleeves and drop links about 3 weeks ago ,could i have put a bush on upside down, would that make a difference ?

    is there anyway of testing the track rod ends to see if they are faulty

    i dont think its a warped disc from what i can see

    To test your track rod ends just jack up 1 side grab the wheel at 9 and 3 and give it a wobble left to right you will feel if there is any play

    its a warped disk! if it only does it while braking its the disk, if its track rod ends then the wheel can wobble all the time not just when braking
