STEERING WHEEL & BRAKING ISSUE

Audi a6 quattro
When I accelerate around 50 -55 mph my steering wheel rocks back and forth, similar to vibrating. And also when push on the break to slow down it feels like the floor under my feet is wobbling/shaking. It doesnt sound or feel like a grinding or anything manly wobbling. When I go faster than 60mph the steering wheel doesnt shake. Any idea what it could be? Thank you ! : )

Have the tires checked for shifted belts. Have the steering rack mount bolts checked as they tend to come loose and move around. Have the brake rotors checked for being warped as well.

I doubt it's tires or brake rotors.

Control arm bushings would be my "non expert" guess.
