Having problems with your 2001 Toyota Camry Solara ?

Brakes my steering wheel shakes bad when i'm driving. I bought 2 new tires for the front, I replaced the rotors and brakes, I bled the brakes from the tires and the master cylinder. my brakes are still hard, steering wheel still shakes and I can smell brakes when I stop. I think my brakes are locked up.

Hello , it sounds like maybe you need to have your car alimement check .
I don't know if the brakes dragging would cause the shaking or not but I will ask a question or two.
Does the car steer to the right or left when you apply the brakes? This would be caused by any leaking fluid or if one side is dragging heavily. This is because when the brakes heat up too much they begin to fade and loose there stopping power. If one side is dragging the car will pull to the other side when you apply the brakes.
You need to make shure that the brakes are clean and dry. Free from all grease or break fluid.
If a wheel is dragging the rotor will overheat and will cause "Blueing" of the rotors or they will look like they have small cracks in them.
Also did the shaking start imediatly after all the work or did it take a while?
