First off when you change a brake rotor, they should be done on both sides, and pads as well. Or you get these similar kind of problems or a host of others. But in this case, I would pull the rotor back off and look for something between the rotor and the hub that is preventing a solid mate between the two. If this is okay, then replace the rotor as it may be warped. I assume the shake was not present before the job. The rotor was brand new, and new pads were installed on both sides. the left rotor was not replaced as the mechanic said it was fine. But I'll check the rotor to see if something is stuck behind it. Thanks for your suggestion.

You said you also replaced the tie-rod end. If you did not get the alignment done after that I would look to that to be more the culprit of a shake.

Vibration when applying brakes is most likely warped rotors. Another cause could be loose caliper bolts.

check transmission fluid for correct amount or being dirty if fluid is ok your transmission is wearing out

If you have a new pressurised water system there is a possibility that the added water pressure could cause a leak.

Braking is the action of applying pressure, in an attempt to stop an object. This could be a car, bike, scooter ect.

brakes are the braking system It could be a part of the control system It has a hydraulic system in the braking system

if it is vibration when braking, it is most likely warped brake discs ,which can be skimmed using a lathe or by replacing. if it is vibration when not braking & coming off the power it could be wear in an inner cv joint

I have a 95 galant that would just quit running at a stop or even driving it would just loose all electrical power. It turned out to be the cheap alarm system they put in it. when i removed the alarm it quit having the problem.

you could have worped disk brakes. or your brake pads are not level with your disk brake

A virus could be activated by the installation. The software files may be large, which may cause the computer to run slow and crash.

The biggest risk in installing outdoor ceiling fans is that of electrical shock, if it is not installed properly or is not for use in an outdoor area. Rain and snow could cause electrical shock and may even cause a fire if not properly installed or used correctly.

The likely cause is that the brakes are being applied unevenly. The reason for this could range from misaligned brake pads to brake line leaks. See a mechanic as soon as you can, since it could indicate a serious problem.

If the rotors are worn too thin, they could snap apart while braking, leaving you with no braking power at all.

Possibly loose belts slipping on the rotating pulleys. Need tightening which isn't a complicated job but need to be careful not to over tighten which could cause damage to the pulleys and the belts could break if old.

If you're feeling a shaking/shuddering through the steering wheel when braking, this could mean you have warped rotors or uneven wear in your brake pads. Check them. It could also signify an unbalance in your tires. If you're feeling a change in the braking, like locking up or a skidding, this could mean something is wrong with your ABS (if your model has ABS).

Likely a loose or broken strut or shock. Could be the same for a load leveling bar, depending on the vehicle.
