Q: Front end shaking.

asked by on

The front end shakes when braking and shakes a little when driving as well. Was told it could be the wheel bearings.

The shakes can be the front wheel bearings loose and the front brake rotors warped. The vehicle front end has to be lifted and bearings checked. The rotors will only cause the shake when stoping. You will need to have the bearings checked and replaced as needed and then road tested for warped rotors.
