Is the engine also running poor such as tries to stall or the RPM is high? Is there an unusual suction type sound? Check the vacum hose to the brake booster, if loose, cracked or a hole in it.
This is about a 1/2" diameter hose and goes to the booster from the engine for power brake assist.

SOURCE: Noise in the front end of my 1997 Dodge Caravan 3.0L

You can drive on those struts untill it has no sping, and even then it is just dangerous because of bad handling. If it is you struts, then your car should bounce up and down if you tap the brakes, because the gas seal is leaking.
Struts are very easy to replace. The only special tool is a spring compressor, but it is easy to use, and you may be able to borrow one at an auto parts store like the AutoZone. Just a couple bolts at the top and bottom, and it comes right out. They cost less than $100.
If it doesn't bounce...it could be your half-shaft. Does it click when you make a turn backing up?

Testimonial: "Thanks Captain, I'm worried now that the noise is not coming from the struts because the car does not bounce. What is a Half Shaft? "

SOURCE: vibration in front end

It is likely both your track bar and the lack of a steering gear box stabilizer. The bushings on your stock track bar can be replaced with polyeurethane or metal bushings which will help curb the problem.
The steering stabilizer attaches to your steering gear box and your frame allowing the steering to be more stable. I have put both on my truck and it drives like a caddy now as a result. If I had to choose between the two items, my money would go to the steering stabilizer first. I believe I bought mine here:

My car is shaky every time i hit a stop light?


you should keep all four tires on the ground !!!! LOL ! your rotors or brake pads are bad. do you feel it shake in the steering wheel ? Check these three items and im sure it will fix.......1) jack front car up and try to move front tires in all directions, does it feel loose at all? if yes check tie rod ends, upper and lower ball joints. 2) check brake pads for wear, heat from pads warp the rotors and cause the break pedal and steering to shake or vibrate. 3) If nothing can be found wrong with the tie rods or ball joints i recommend changing the rotors and brake pads, a pretty cheap fix.

When appling brakes it starts viribrating some times


Your brake discs/rotors are most likely warped. If you feel the vibration in the steering wheel when you apply the brakes, it is the front brakes. If you don't feel it in the steering wheel, it would be in the rear. Turning the discs/rotors will solve the problem. Average price is $25 per disc. Check the price on replacing them. If the cost of replacing them is the same as turning them, replace them. Your better off and the labor is the same. Good luck

check balance of tires; if ok, have rotors refinished or replaced; most likely warped rotors if you can feel it in the brake pedal when braking

Had bad vibration in front end of car when brakes applied,installed new rotors and pads,still have slight vibration when brakes applied.


do u feel the vibration in the steering wheel or in the seat,i bet the most vibration was coming out of the front brakes and a little out of the rear brakes,u might want to change the rear brakes if the vibration is still annoying,also were the front wheels torqued to spec when installed?? if not u might end up with warped front brakes again,hope this helped
