Sounds like rotors or tires/wheels.

Just put brakes on good rotors too not cheap ones. And good pads. Could the sway bar cause that shake?

The rotors could be new but could be warped too-best thing to do is have it Mike out for excessive parallelism and out of roundness

Shake has not changed since before brake parts installed?

Try the shake was there prior to new brakes I've been a mechanic for 20+years never had this prior situation.

That's what I meant. Describe the shake?

Felt like warped rotors so we changed all. Steering wheels shakes seat shakes brake pedal does at first then goes away. Feels like the whole front end shakes.I would not think sway bar bushings would make it feel like that. When the pedal stops shaking the rest of the truck still does.

Cut the new rotors 2/1000s I have done this because of cars coming back with a shake shortly after the repair. It trues the rotor.
