My car shakes when I hit the breaks at moderate to high speeds (the steering wheel jitters, etc). Does this have something to do with the breaks, tires or anything? It didn't do this before.

Thanks.

Mine does the same, something wrong with one of my rotors.

My rotor had to be replaced, my old cougar did that all the time. I went through 2 under warranty and 1 not under warranty. (dad works on mercurys for a living and says, that cougars warp rotors a lot)

Rotors are worped. Common on ALL ford rotors. You can buy rotors at Murrays or Autozone that have 2 year warranties. I'm on set #5 right now on my front axle.

Thanks to all, I finally got the dough to fix the problem. My front end was out of alignment and I needed two new front rotors.
