We have replaced/inspected brakes, different parts in the front end, etc. Husband knows all about cars/builds them. Called the Chevy dealer and they did not know what it was about and had an Equinox in the shop with the same problem. No codes. No lights. 210K miles on the car. I am wondering if the ABS needs to be reset/replaced because one time when braking it bounced back like the ABS was active and the shaking was a lot less and now it is back to shaking a lot.
Front end vibrates when braking at high speeds. Does not vibrate at low speed. on 2006 Chevrolet Equinox

So i guess the tires have been checked for out of round and balance. Brake rotor run out checked, does it do this ONLY when brakes are applied?
Yes to the tires and brakes - all checks Only happens when the brakes are applied and only at 55 miles per hour and above. Does not happen at 50 and below
