Yes, its only happening when I brake. What I meant that everything starts out smooth is that theres no vibration or noises or wheel alignment drifting or any sort.

Its when I brake, everything starts shaking.

I wish I had paid more attention when I started doing everything but I want to say that the day I had the new rotors/brakes installed, even with old/worn tires and bad alignment, that everything seemed to brake just fine. I dont recall hearing the loud rumbling and feeling the hard vibration. I want to say it just started happening. Also, and this is not even part of the problem but I started noticing that if I do a u-turn to the LEFT, on the right side I hear a constant tap/knocking (sort of like hearing rapid machine gun fire at a distance).


Again, my lower control arm bushing is destroyed but Amazon is slipping right now and what should have been a Tuesday fix is now a Thursday fix so I'm still waiting to rule that out.

Any other info/help is appreciated.

Thanks!
