    Hey guys, I was wondering if you guys could help me out. Well, everytime I brake while going down a steep hill, my steering wheel sakes really really bad. Like it clicks or hits somethin inside the dash, any ideas what could be causing this and how to fix it? Also it uses electrical power steering, I don't know if that would make a difference.

    First guess would be your rotors. Does your car shake when you brake hard? If not the rotors my next guess would be the tie rods. I had a shake problem in my steering wheel and I replaced the 2 front tie rods, and that fixed it.

    Your rotors are warped.
