did that solve your problem?
I assume your shaking only occurred when brakes were applied?

To OP: your problem, only when driving, braking, turning, etc...?

I put mine on a lift and found out that facing the side of my wheel, I could shake it right to left. Found out the ball joints on my tie rod ends are loose. I am going to go to pick your part and most likely it'll fix it.

2 yrs later no shakes...

I replaced brakes/rotors, got estimates for entire suspension redoing...then took it to an exotic repair shop that my buddy worked at = trusted. Turns out the issue was pot holes. The rims in the front were bent in random places, causing shakes and vibration at certain speeds. Rim repair and wheel balancing solved the problem (much cheaper than all the stealership estimates).
