Ok I had a real bad shutter in the front end when I put on the brakes. I just replaced the rotors and pads and it got rid of most of it.

My front end still shutters under hard braking now though. What else could be causing this?

Steering stabalizer's shot, maybe the ball joints are bad, or possibly the tie rod ends. Shocks are wasted. Do you ever get the death wobble at speed?

that's the weird part. It drives straight as an arrow down the highway, no speed wobble at all. Steering feels tight as well. It just shutters when I hit the brakes. I have to apply them fairly hard now to get it to do it. Could it be wheel bearings? How else could I check?

It could be the bearings. How did you get the rotors off? Seriously hammering on them on the rotors can damage the bearings. This happened to me.

No hammering at all. I used a puller

I know you put new rotors on but I can almost gaurantee your rotors are not perfectly true. Get them turned just a little. Tell the guy they are new and you want to see if they are perfectly true. Go to NAPA or a place that you know
