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.

Shaking when braking at faster speeds in a Pontiac G6?

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).
