Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I hit the brakes the front-end shakes really

What is the fix

Control arm bushings more than likely. Put your foot on the front if the tire and push backwards towards the rear if the car. If tire moves your control arms are worn. Give it a try


Have it evaluated at a suspension alignment shop. Also did you properly torque the wheel lugs? Getting them way too tight can warp the brake rotors causing the vibration.


could even be stuck calipers or brake piston.. rare but possible.
