1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Q&A

1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Question: steering wheel shakes when applying brakes

When I am traveling at speeds over 50mph and I then apply the brakes the steering wheel seems to shake and my steering seems to waver. WHY? -
Answer 1
Sometimes a brake pedal pulsation can be felt in the steering wheel also. If there is NO pulsation in the brake pedal of your 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme then I would suspect a worn steering component causing your steering wheel to shake when braking. -
Answer 2
Oakman, isn't it also possible that the rotors are warped, if the shaking happens always under braking? -
Comment 1
i have a Honda Civic with the same problem but rotors and breaks are totally fine......what is the problem? -
Answer 3
sounds like you need some new rotors also check to see if you need to balance your tires -
