shaking while braking

iv noticed that occasionally while im drive then while im braking, my steering wheel starts shaking and i can feel the whole jeep shaking, but it doesnt shake while driving. idk what it could be, i was thinking maybe the steering stabilizer is going out?

worn TRE's, warped rotors, probably a combo of both.

Sometimes I question my sanity. Occasionally it replies.

Have you checked the brake pads & rotors? It might be causing a shimmy. The rotors could be warped.

Edit: I was not quick on the draw.

If the wheel starts to shake when you apply the brakes then chances are your rotors are warped. You can take them off and have them cut if they are within spec, or just replace them. Most local garages will be able to cut them, all of the big box auto repair places will too. If you decide to replace them buy quality ones. Not the cheapest ones you can find. There is a huge difference in the materials and design when comparing Bendix to the bargain brand ones.

Also, PLEASE take the time to fill out your profile. As you will have more questions related to your jeep in the future. When you ask a question about this or that, the first thing we do is look at your profile to see what your jeep is and what mods you have done. Be as specific as possible.

If it has tracks, tires or tits, its gonna cause a problem.

Definitively your rotors. Just go buy new rotors and pads. They are not expensive at all.

Most likely caused from heavy footed braking or riding on the brakes. I have a Lexus that it has happened a couple of time to. The cause was hitting the brakes hard at highway speed. Rotors today are so darn thin that they cannot take the heat, most times they are so thin brand new that they cannot be ground. Forcing you to buy new ones.
