    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.
