Noise only when applying brakes?

no it quiets down when drake is pressed. i pulled the pads and rotor off and they look fine. also what is the part behind the rotor that has what looks like a sensor that runs back in the fender whel?

Anti lock brake sensor. Use caution when fouling with this. Sounds like you might have a wheel bearing going bad.

Also what do your cv axle boots look like? Any cracks or grease coming out of them?

the cv axles also look ok. if the bearings are going out that would cause the filling off something lose? when speed up it seems to straighten up but when i let off thats when i fill it Bad. i just got the car and have been trying to fix it back up. i already did a timing belt because it has a lot of miles. the speedo doesnt work either (thats my next fix) but the car shows 217xxx

Not in my experience more of a tighten grinding feeling. Inspect tie rod ends. They can make a shaking feeling at certain speeds and stop or get worse when applying the brake.

Mine had a shake/wobble feeling in steering wheel that sometime got better or worse when applying brakes. Turned out to be tie rods where wore out. 217xxx miles on it also.

ill check them in the morning.even if i do the wheel bearings rotors pads and tie rods i should be looking under $250.00. and then at least i would know that those parts are new.
