so it had the shake and you did the brakes and you still have the shake right afterwards? If the brakes are all new and the rotors all replaced it's still possible that there might be a rotor problem. Who knows, maybe someone dropped the new rotor in the box and damaged it. Not likely but it is possible. Brake pulsation is more a out of parallel problem than just a warped rotor. So you probably have gone through the tires to make sure it's not a tire problem...

Have you looked for play in your track bar?It hooks up to the left side frame and goes to the right side of the axle. If the ball socket gets worn or the bushing on the other end gets worn, they could allow the axle to move side to side while driving. It affects braking, sometimes acceleration or when you hit bumps. Because it attaches to the frame it may seem like it's not coming from the front but it's a simple thing to check. Start the engine to turn on the power steering. Have someone hold the brake pedal down and turn the steering wheel back and forth about 1/8 to 1/4 turn and you look at the track bar at the two ends. Look for play at the ends. The rubber bushing should move a little (because it's rubber) but see if it's excessive. The ball socket end should be able to turn a little but shouldn't move side to side (play inside the socket) Make sure the rest of the front suspension parts are all good.

is the shake anytime you brake? Or is it when you brake from highway speeds? Does adding weight to the back of the bed make any difference?
