Default 300 c violent shaking .....PLEASE HELP

Hi,
I am hoping someone can help. I have a 2007 Chrysler 300C hemi , recently while braking at higher speeds, 50mph - 80++mph, the whole front end of my car shakes violently and the steering wheel as well. It is so bad that you have to slow down and in some cases pull over. My mechanic and I are at our wits end because at this point we have replaced the upper and lower control arms, tie rods , struts , sway bar links , and rack n pinion, the only thing left to do is replace the ball joints which he is doing now. At this point we have dumped over $3000. in parts and labor into the car repairs. Its not the tires. I know what out of balance tires feel like, this is not an annoying vibration, this is a VIOLENT death wobble that vibrates the front end and the steering wheel to an extent that I nor my mechanic have ever felt or seen and you have to slow down and pull over. If the ball joints don't fix this I am going to have to sell the car. Just so you know my parents have owned this car for years and they have taken immaculate care of this car and only the chrysler dealership mechanics and my mechanic have worked on it and the inside and out look almost like a new car. Has anyone experienced this??? Please help. My name is Aaron. Thank you for your help.

To me this sounds like a classic brake issue such as bad rotors, loose calipers, etc.

The other thing I question is your mechanic. A guy who keeps blindly replacing parts at your expense should be replaced himself., There must be a more thoughtful professional mechanic out there for you and your car. BTW How many miles on your car and have you had an alignment after this wholesale parts replacement.

! other thing. Please do keep us informed on the process and final solution to your proplem.

Default Violent shaking

You misunderstood, we have been replacing the front end one step at a time to try and find out what it is. This is not the rotors because it would vibrate at all speeds. Also, this is not a little vibration , the whole front end of the car will vibrate so badly that you have to slow down and or pullover. .

Have a look at the sub frame bushes and motor mounts.

Aaron, I still have an issue with your mechanic. I recon he is 95% of the problem. Sorry. Anyway , do keep us informed as this is a fascinating thread.

PS; How many miles on your car?

I agree. This mechanic is making money off of you and laughing.
