pontiac sunfire 1999 shaking when pressing the brakes

Asked by Oct 30, 2011 at 11:05 PM about the 1999 Pontiac Sunfire

Question type: Maintenance & Repair


My oncle just bought a 1999 pontiac sunfire and it as a problem that we can't figure out. When you press the brakes on pavement more then on a dirt road it shakes alot on the driver side. So this is what we tried so far:

-first thing we changed was the rotor
-grease up the caliper to make sure it moves back and forth
-changed the hub with the bearing
-changed the drive axle
-changed abs sensors
-disabled abs to see
-changed the strut
-changed both control arm bushings on that side.

Please any help would be appreciated, we're out of ideas.
