Default Front end shake

Hi guys
I've just imported a 06 Ram 1500 quad cab sport in to the UK. It has 30,000 miles and I've noticed that the steering wheel shakes a lot despite having the wheels balanced in the tire shop

It shakes pretty hard when braking too, thought it was the rotors but it doesn't happen all the time, sometimes it's worse when I'm braking on a left hand bend - the whole front end shakes violently

Is there anything on the steering I should be looking at ?

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks
Bill

You need to have the rotors resurfaced. That's called pulsating and its caused by the rotors getting a little out of true due to heat and the tires not being torqued right.

This is the issue, probably not the rotors. Check the service records to see if the recall has been performed.
