Question Need Help

I have a 528e 1988 . dose anyone know what will cause it to shake at speeds between 40 and 60 mph and on applying the brakes. I had the tires balanced and I replaced the front rotors . It only shakes vigourously when I apply the brake and it get down to 60mph then it stop shaking at about 40mph .

Could be a Prop/drive-shaft balance issue, or even the centre-bearing on the prop !!
Just an idea my friend...

Another thought - Run the engine in neutral and rev and hold it in different rev areas, just to feel any vibrations... If none then this has eliminated engine balance and/or flywheel issue !

Welcome to the Werkz

This is a reasonably common issue caused by worn front control arms and related steering components. A front end specialist shop will be familiar with the issue and be able to replace the parts then do an alignment. Its not too expensive normally.
