I get a shimmy when I brake especially lightly. If I brake hard there is little or no shimmy.
I have replaced the rotors, calipers, front wheel bearings, drive shafts, struts, strut bearings, and sway bar links.
First assumed it was warped rotors, Then figured maybe calipers were acting up when they got hot. Seemed okay when cold.
Front bearings needed replacing anyway (making noise) and figured with over 100K should replace CV joints while I had it apart.
Replaced struts thinking they were the problem and the strut bearings were shot and needed replacing. Was suggested that I try the sway bar links since they connect to the struts. The lower joints were bad, sloppy.
So what can be the cause of the shimmy?
have the same problem?
