If it shimmies while you brake it is a good indication your rotors are warped. When you replaced your pads, you should have A. Replace your rotors, B. Turn down or machine your rotors to a even surface. I would do A. in your case since you just replaced your pads. Even if they "look good" you can't tell they are warped. Hope this helps!

yeah thanks a lot i just bought two new rotors today, hopefully this will stop the shimmy also is there any chance that my struts are going, when i go over bumps i can hear a rattling sound? thanks tim.
