car shakes and shudders when i hit the brakes on 2003 Mitsubishi Galant

I was told it had nothing to do with my brakes.could it be the rack and pinion by any chance?

If the car shutters and is felt in the brake pedal and steering wheel it is normally the brake rotors that are warped but first all the basics need to be checked. Ensure the suspension bushings are not worn make sure tie rod ends inner tie rod ends and steering rack mounts, and alignment are all OK.
wow that sounds pretty expensive don't make house calls do ya ? lol just kidding.any advice on what place to have it checked out at where they won't overcharge a lady?
