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.
Oakman, isn't it also possible that the rotors are warped, if the shaking happens always under braking?
i have a Honda Civic with the same problem but rotors and breaks are totally fine......what is the problem?
