hey guys and gals.
i have a 93 5l vr thats shuddering under braking at low speeds. doesnt do it all the time... can really feel it thru the steering wheel, slight wobble side to side. a lil at top speeds too but not bad... any ideas? brakes? trans?

a tailshaft vibration is usally constant at the same speed while travelling like at 60kmh u will feel vibrations but not when ur braking at different speeds

Most likely your rotors need machining or if undersize they will need replacing
