Default 2010 avenger brakes

I have a 2010 Avenger. New Tires, brake pads and rotors, front and back.
Got a shimmy in the steering wheel between 55-60 mph and when applying the brakes. Had tires rebalanced, front end rechecked, shimmy at 55-60 mph resolved but not the shimmy when applying the brakes. was told rotors were warped, so replaced them and new pads. shimmy was gone for about 7-10 days and now its back when I apply the brakes.
What is next?
Thanks
Brian

What brand of parts are you using? Are the back brakes in good condition and properly adjusted? If not, the fronts will be doing all the braking and will warp the disks prematurely.

How many miles are on your Avenger?? My wife's 08 has 95k miles. Still on the original brakes.
