    Steering Wheel wobble

    When I brake from medium-hard breaking from high-ish speeds (50mph+), the steering wheel shakes really roughly, to the point that I have to grip it really tighly to stop it going mad.
    Now, my Astra is an oldie one so there's no PAS, has anyone got any idea what this is?
    Thanks,
    Rob

    Discs could be "Warped" if thats the world.

    When the discs and pads are hot, keeping your foot on the brake at lights can bend the discs, making them uneven.

    This could be your peoblem mate.

    On trade from Vauxhall your looking at £45 a set.

    If you aint got a trade account, be alright with the parts people, and they will give you trade prices anyway.
