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 .
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.
