    does i happen when you down shift? does it happen when you are accelerating from a red light?

    If you have ASR/TCS check the sensors at the rear wheels to be sure they're fully plugged in. Have you had work done on the brakes? If you feel it through the pedal might be warped rotors???????

    Have you changed wheel sizes or gears? This may be confusing the ABS.

    OMG! dont' go to the stealership!!! go to a local shop so you don't get overcharged. better yet, find out if there are any local f-body enthusiasts groups in your area that you can join; maybe they have better relations with a particular shop whom they trust can do proper work on our vehicles...god don't ever EVER go to the stealership unless it's the last thing you can do.

    i know.. i know,.. i worked in the service dept. for several dealers in the past,.. big rip off,.. my hubby does auto body repair/ paint/ and has done some of the minor things on this car, but the brakes have him stumped too,..
    we've replaced pads, and whatever else goes with that,.. and we've even replaced the rotors, but the eay this car is handling, with the shimmying in the steering, while braking, and low trac light on, and the abs inoperable light
    constantly coming on,,.. not to mention when braking, you can feel it making
    a bucking motion,.. but all of this is only when braking, not during normal driving,.. so 28 yrs as an auto body man,.. this has him stumped.
