Most probably your rotors. But it's a good idea to check the rest of your suspension components while your under there. How many miles?

53,000 miles. Pretty low for the age. I'm gonna go check the rotors shortly though.

agree with tom. Go get the rotors resurfaced on a lathe.

53K? Time to resurface them like kbro suggested. If your pads are worn and your replace them, I'd personally also purchase new rotors.

Thanks for the info. Sure enough, the rotors were really bad. Changed them and the pads. NO SHAKING!!
