Every time I apply the brakes going over 40mph, the front of the car shakes. Brakes are fine. Three places I went to said it was the tie rods or just need an alignment but of course want a boat load of money.

2006 Pontiac Grand Prix Question: Front of car shakes when applying brakes
Answer #1pushrod September 18, 2013, 06:05Master
Suspect front brake rotors are warped/excessive runout from, possible, improper lug nut torque or torque sequence. Suggest replacement, can be machined/turned. IF still within specs!

Iagree with pushrod. but I wouldnt machine the rotors because the more you take off the rotor the esier it will be to warp again

sounds like the rotors are warped and need machining

maybe it's a combination of both, Get a second opinion from a shop you trust.And ask to see the 'play' in the tie rods before they replace them. A trustworthy shop won't mind showing you .
