Re: Front-end shimmy-dance when I brake 5KCSTQ

On my two Synchros I replaced all bushings and rotors and the problem 
came back worse eventually.  Same for two brothers' 4kcsq's.  One 
replaced his front wheel bearings on suggestion from local Guru, he and 
the new owner have had many years trouble free since.  Lost both my 
Synchros to deer.
