I have a 2002 grand prix, when I was stopping my front end shakes. Took it to get the rotors and brake pads replaced and it is still shaking when I brake. Any suggestions to what it may be?

Ask the shop you took it to if they checked the rotors before they put them on, just because they are new doesn't mean they are good. It sounds like the rotors are warped. Or you have some steering components that are severely worn.

Thanks, the shop has it right now. Going to take it for a ride to see if they can figure out what is making it shake. When I go back in I want to have some idea of what is going on so they do not over charge me for things that do not need replaced. Thanks for your suggestion about what could be going on! :)
