Default Front of truck shakes when brakes are hit...

I have had an issue with my '06 Ram shaking in the front when I hit the brakes. The shaking was so bad at one time when I hit the brakes at night I see my headlight beams bouncing up and down on highway signs. So first action I did was change out all four brake rotors and replace with crossed drilled slotted rotors with ceramic pads(February 2011). Now when I hit the brakes it only shakes a tad bit and not as much as it did before. What else could be making the truck shake? The inner and outer tie rod ends have been competely replaced back in September (due to the previous driver not taking care of it). I am also coming up on 60,000 miles. Should there be anything that I need to replace around this time? Please help me out!

It could be your rotors again because the drilled rotors are not good in my eyes because when they drill them it wrecks the small plates i guess i could call it thats inbetween there fore making it weaker and easier to warp

Tire imbalance can be amplified by braking. Have a road force balance done to eliminate radial and lateral imbalance. If you have a bad tire, this will identify it.

There are grease seals that could be leaking lubricant on the rotors which will make the truck shake bad. They are a cheap change and might fix your problem.

It would just seem odd if these new rotors warped that fast. I know they are the same thickness of the factory ones. But the shaking is only coming from the front driver's side.

what is the condition of your tires? have you had your alighnment done recently?
bad alighnment can cause poor tire wear and then the poor tire condition can affect breaking and acceleration...one effect is bad vibrations
