Shaking, vibrating of steering wheel when applying brakes

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?

Do you
have the same problem?

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.
