I have a 2000 Dodge dakota 4.7L V8 and has 4 wheel drive.
I just replaced my tires on my truck and had a front alignment done. It still shakes when I drive when I hit the brakes. I really want it to stop any ideas

Misalignment doesn't cause shaking unless a steering or suspension part is worn. Shaking while braking is very common and is caused by warped front brake rotors. They are machined for that as long as they will still be above the published legal minimum thickness. If not, they are replaced.
