Default Could warped rotors make your car shake at certain speeds?

My car is shaking at 65-70mph on the highway and was wondeirng if warped rotors could cause this. I already changed my axles, shocks, and got a balance and alignment. I ask this because my car shakes a little when I press on the brakes.

Definatly sounds like your rotors to me. Especially if you really notice it when you hit the brakes.

Ita a good posibility, could also be pads that are wearing funny and not gripping the rotors right.

It could be, I would have suggested the other things you have ALREADY replace. Is it ALOT worse when you brake? I read in another post that your tie rod ends could be bad? Where you got your tires balanced, did they say how you tires were doing? A tire with a broken belt, or feathering or even cupping could do this. Just tryin to give ya ideas.

Dude I have a broken bolt on one of the tires and I was thinking of replacing my tie rods too so maybe I could get new rotors, pads , tie rods and get extended bolts too. Thanks I will try this and let you guys know.

i dont see how rotors could make your car shake. They might make it shake while braking, but you should know your rotors are toast by all the feedback you can feel in the pedal.
