This only happens when I slow the car down to a stop, like at a stop light. When I slow down from highway speed say, 65 mph to 50 mph, there is no vibration.
The virbation can be felt through the seat and I have already changed the rear rotors and brake pads. I can almost feel the virbation in the brake pedal so I might do the front rotors next. But why is it that I do not feel the vibrations in high speed?

Thanks for any input.

most probably it is the McPherson struts ie the shocks that are gone - I have had the same in other cars with McPherson and it is most annoying - does not happen at higher speed as you get away from the natural frequency of the "shot shock"

how does car go on the bounce test at front?

if never replaced shocks then I would do it now [back as well] - car will drive heaps better

Also look at the rubber carrier under the car for the driveshaft.
