Help!!!

today when i was braking at a traffic light out of no where my steering wheel started shaking uncontrollably. i almost lost control. it seems to me like its coming from my front right axle area. i was forced to downshift the whole way home so i wouldnt shake again. its almost like the death wobble when im breaking
any help would be appreciated

Did your right front brake smell or feel hot? Thats what it does when one of the front brakes is locking up. Check all your bushings and tie-rod ends as well as track bar.

Right front brakes have been giving everyone problems lately. My problem was the left front, and it was the rubber hose deteriorating on the inside.
