Vibration during braking and cornering
 
My car has a really bad shudder in the steering wheel when braking at speed, and it also has a similar shudder when making fast right turns like a looped freeway offramp.

I figure the shaking during braking could be caused by bad rotors, but cant figure out what would cause it during turning. Keep in mind, that the car has mostly original bushings (161k miles), and svt suspension.

HELP!!

Sounds like warped rotors to me.

rotors when braking, and how fast are you taking the offramps? even though your not braking the rotors if warped bad enough can contact the pads..... start there its the cheapest thing.

This may sound silly but you may also want to make sure your lug nuts are tight if you've done anything lately to take the tires off.

Not silly at all.I had a Big O Tire give my car back with finger tight lugs, so that is the first thing i checked

Ive just been holding off on the rotors, cause i wanted to upgrade to svt fronts, but $420 to fix my PATS at the dealer changed that plan.
