    Vibration when braking from high speed

    Noticed a vibration / wobble when braking at high speed. The wobble comes through the steering wheel but not too bad but when looking at the gearstick it going mental. Only does it now and then but feels like it's from the O/S/F somewhere.
    Not discs, wheels or tyres as these have been checked today. Do these suffer from strut top mounts failing?

    Mines started doing it and i know that the engine/drivetrain mounts and suspension arms have seen better days probably been on there since factory, so going to put that on my next job of things to do its from the n/s/f and only at high speeds say 60-100mph obviously the faster i am going the more vigorous the shake becomes.

    If its only doing it when braking, then its pretty likely to be an issue with the brakes. Perhaps some crap on the hub stopping the disk sitting square, or you've not been treating them properly and have managed to get pad deposits on the new disks already.

    treated fine, does it more when braking but can feel something when driving normally.
