Yes, there are slide pins on the caliper mounting bracket. They like to get froze up and only let one side of the caliper push against the rotor. This is what causes the shimmy.
Pull the calipers back off and check the pins. They have a bellowed rubber boot over them to keep dirt out. Take them out, clean them up, and re-lube them with brake lube.
