Thanks for the punctuation.

What I suggest is a free test that is explained here:
- What is the cause of severe shuddering while slow speed braking on bumps (1)

That's a long thread, so I'll summarize that all you need to do is disconnect the ABS control module harness (pictures galore of which are in the post I previously referenced).

Let us know if simply disconnecting that harness has any effect on your brake-related vibration or not.

(Bill, I hadn't noticed the Nigerian connection ... all I ever get from Nigeria are badly spelled emails imploring me personally to temporarily store millions of dollars in new-found gold for them while they work out the details with the government, keeping half of the gold as their token of appreciation for my troubles) ... but punctuation should be the same in Nigeria as in the USA, right?)
Please read the suggested threads and add value, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person stands on your shoulders.
