I have a 1995 Toyota Corolla.
I had the brake done about six month ago (turned rotors brake pads,etc)
Now, when I am going highway sped and if I hit the brakes with any sort of decent pressure at all the whole car vibrates.
Any Ideas?
Thanks

The Calipers are probably hanging up and need to be replaced.

Have you had any emergency stops in the last 6 months or recently. When a rotor is hot, if you come to a complete stop with a lot of brake pressure, some of the pad adheres to the rotor surface. When the pad passes over this spot again it has more friction then the rest of the surface so you get the shuddering you speak of. It is common in hilly areas for this to happen where your braking longer and harder on hills, but can happen in any environment. Cheap pads are prone to cause this.
What quality of rotors and pads did you install?

like the other guys said, most likely warped rotors. Have the rotors turned, and put on some high quality brake pads to prevent it from happening again.
