Mein Auto: 1985 535i
535i Shaking

I have a 1985 535i it was shaking very hard when i would brake not when i drove or took turns(as long as i didnt brake) really it only did it when i was braking lightly or hard I replaced the upper control arms and alot of the shake seems to have gone away but there is still some there when i brake not nearly as hard as before but is there anything I can do?

control arms...brake rotors possibly are usual suspects, check all the bushings too they are probably worn out
