I have just realised on the freeway today that my car power steering vibrates and sometimes turn left when i apply brakes(front wheel brakes).

Weather i need wheel balancing/alignment OR something is wrong with brakes.
Please help!

might also pay to have the whole steering and braking assembly checked out too. i had the same problem when i bought my car and less than 12 months later it was back, mind you its still there, but im saving to have my brakes and bushes all replaced along with some other stuff

i got my front discs machined on tuesday for $30 for both. But i pulled it all apart. Make sure you regrease the bearings while it is apart if your doing it yourself.

The only way your steering will shudder like that is when you pretty much have no tie-rod ends. My guess, along with most others, is your discs have been warped. Time for new ones, or machined.
