Re: Front end

There are mountings on the engine and also transmission , cant remember if it's 3 or 4 fitted to that car . Might be a good idea to get yourself a workshop manual if you intend to do your own repairs .Then you would see illustrations / pictures / exploded views of the different parts and how to replace or overhaul them .

If they are warped , worn , you normally get a kick off the brake pedal and the vibration on braking . But you said that was not happening when I asked earlier .

Would shaking on the front end at those speeds be the same problem too? Just more intense when breaking.

Re: Front end

Possible. You need to get the front end up on blocks, check for uneven trad wear on the tires, the discs for and rotors, and general condition of the linkages and mounts.

INSPECTING THE BRAKES

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
