I have a 2001 taurus, with 143,000 miles. Had the transmission rebuilt earlier this year, along with major suspension work, a front end alignment, and new tires. Replaced the brake rotors and brake pads this summer. There is a bad wobble in the front end when I step on the brakes at high speeds (about 55mph and above). At lower speeds, its not so bad. It causes the steering wheel to shake a little bit. This is why I went ahead and replaced the brake rotors, thinking this would solve the problem. It didn't. Anyone have any ideas on what could be causing this? I'm thinking it is the cv joints. however, there does not seem to be any noises coming from the front end when I drive, at any speeds. cant figure this one out.

Probably not the CV axles. Rather the lower balljoint, steering endlink... or something like that.
Lift the front tires one at a time and try to move the tire with your hands sideways - look behind it to see if anything moves.
