Shakes or Wobbles problem
2002 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 120K miles

You guys were a great help to me finding a vacuum leak on my daughter's Taurus a while back. Now I need your help again. The Taurus goes down the road smoothly, but when I put on the brakes at 40 MPH or higher the front end shakes and the steering wheel wobbles. The brake pads were recently replaced. I looked at the rotors and they looked okay. What would cause this huge vibration?

Recheck the brake work, and these cars eat rotors, they run very hot, and the heat warps them easily, also use a torque wrench to put the lug nuts on, with aluminum wheels, set the wrench at 85 ft. Lbs. Change the rotors, use a torque wrench!
