High speed vibrato
 
Symptoms are:

1. Braking at high speed induces vibration
2. When brake is released, car is still vibrating for a minute or so

Idk if the rotors cause this as I recently skimmed n got new pads, and the fact that it still vibrates after I stopped holding the brake, Idk,
Also I only see the problem of I'm doing over 110 or so

Any ideas?

That is scary, warped rotors wouldn't vibrate the car after releasing the brakes.

Hope some suspension geek will chime in soon. Need this fix with as little trial and error as possiblr

It's the rotors. The pad are still making contact with the roots even if you aren't on the brakes. The shake takes a moment to spread the pads far enough apart so that it stops.

What do I do? Are they warped or too thin, or what? Do the rear rotors give this problem?

How do your lower control arm bushing look?

buy new rotors/pads for the front. If still persists, do the back too

Excellent point, I didn't consider that.
Also, once you do the work properly bed them.
