My front end shakes like hell when I hit the brakes at 50-70mph. It feel like my front end gonna fall apart and it feel like its hitting some thing but it drive smooth and turn smooth. And when I hit the brakes at 10-40mph, my brakes feel like its bitting and letting go. Please let me know if this or anything similiar happen to them.

thanks

Well its a little hard for me to give you an exact diagnoses,but here's everything I would check if it were in front of me.

Calipers and lines for leakage and make sure calipers arent locking up.
Check bushings in front crossmember where radius arms go through,makes Sure bolts are still holding radius arms in.
Check lower ball joints
Lower control arm bushings
Jack car up and shake wheel,may take off wheel and shake spindle(listen for any strange noises)
Check brake fluid level
Check tires for any bulges or bald spots
Check to make sure each wheel has all lugs tightened

your rotors could be warped if you say that it feels like your brakes are bitting and letting go.
did you resently get your k swap? what kind of axles are you running?
