SHAKING, VIBRATING OF STEERING WHEEL WHEN APPLYING BRAKES

Acura CL

97 Acura, 3.5 with 143,000 miles. The problem I am having is that when you apply pressure on the brakes you feel a shaking or rough vibration in the steering wheel coming from the left front brake area. I have had the brakes replaced and I have had the Acura dealer do a thorough 45 point inspection and the only thing that they noted was that I needed a r/f caliper replaced and I have had that done but the real issue is on the left front area. What do you think the problem could be?

Same as the other side. It sounds like a caliper that is warped. Even after they get turned at the shop they are thinner and heat will more easily cause them to warp. Replace with a new one and your problem should dissapear.
