F150 Braking Shimmy

I also posted this in the F150 Forum but I figured I might as well try here also...

Im new here and have a little problem with my F150. I have an 01 Ford Supercrew 4x4 and recently noticed this problem getting worse and worse. I bought the truck with 114k miles on it and it now has 122k miles. Since then a problem has occured with the braking.

When I put on the brakes, it will cause the truck to shake. I put new brake pads on this last weekend and that didnt solve anything. The rotors look perfect and there are no deep scores or excessive wear. I did notice that the upper and lower A-arm bushings were looking a little dry rotted.

Could that cause the shimmy that is taking place?
