Could be any number of things, like the brake pads or rotors, but mor e likely worn suspension components, the tires and or alignment. Where are you located at that the speed limit is above 80mph?

Tom, I am in South Africa. I was just trying to explain that the car behaves in this way and this after I have had the suspension components replaced at a very high cost. and this makes me wonder if the mechanic did a good job.

You may have a caliper sticking (not sliding properly). Having a caliper serviced is generally cheaper than replacing.
