At higher speed(50-60 mph), when road bends left(not a sharp curve), there's a little bounce from the front, I think you might say, as though the slightest road imperfection is affecting the suspension; and coming off the highway at high speed onto an exit ramp, when harder braking is needed, there's a real rumble in the brakes(and, no, I don't have ABS), and the response from the brakes feels really weak. What could all this be. the car was inspected 8 months ago, and there was, I recall, a little brake work done at the time, because i had complained that every time it rains, the brakes squeal and scrape for the first few miles when I first get going in the morning. Thanks a million!

The problem with the rumble when you slow down while braking is clearly a brake issue, it could be worn out rear rotors or drums or something else. The front end/steering problem could be several things, I would have a good front end shop look at this ASAP because this sounds like it could be safety issue.
