Shaking front end

(1998 Ford Explorer)
in Millville, MA on April 12, 2009
Occasionally as I am driving, for no apparent reason the front end of my explorer will shake uncontrollably. I step on the brake hard and slow down, almost stop and it goes away. I was told this could be caused by the steering stabilizer bar. If this is so how difficult is it to repair and how dangerous is it.

Have a an expert front end person check this out. It could be the steering dampener as well. I would have a pro do this inspection and repair. It can take some powerful air hammers to break loose these parts and you want to be sure that the entire, real problem is addressed, or it could endanger your life.
