1989 Mercedes 300CE heavy shaking when applying brakes (not front brakes/rotors)
I don't know exactly when it started but when I'm driving over 25MPH, and i apply the brakes i get a heavy shake in the front end. The shake doesn't feel like its in the pedal or the steering wheel. When it happens it feels like everything is shaking.
Originally when i applied the brakes i could feel the pedal going up, and down slightly. Thinking it was the rotors i replaced the two front rotors and pads with oem German parts. Once the repair was done i went to test it, and now the movement in the pedal is gone but the car still shakes heavily when I'm applying the brakes.
Could this be the flex disk, cv joints, driveline? I have no idea where to start looking could someone please point me in the right direction thanks so much.
