    Like the title says, I have started to notice shuddering when braking, but it ONLY happens when the wheels are turned, really only notice it when getting off a highway ramp going downhill and in a right hand curve. Getting off on straight ramps doesn't do it, and hitting the brakes at speed on the interstate doesn't do it either. So where do I start looking? The rotors and pads up front are only a few months old, and since this only happens when the wheel's turned I'm pretty sure it's not the rotors.

    It's a shaking I feel through both the pedal and the steering column, almost like ABS brakes but slower. If you've ever felt a warped rotor, it's very similar to that feeling, but like I said it only happens when the wheel is turned.

    I have no idea how my wheel bearings are. As for suspension slack, I had the frame replaced back in october, would that have caused any issues with the front suspension?

    I have a similar problem...This only started happening after I got a wheel alignment...shaking/vibrations only at fully cranked wheel going forward or in reverse slowly...ie: turning into a parking stall or reversing out...FYI...I did have seized TRE's...the shop managed to unseize :D
