Juddering when braking hard

I was thinking discs are warped initially but then I thought of the bush in lower arm which is badly deteriorated where the lower fork joins!

well its easy to see what disks are like on the outside through the wheel, whats inside of disks like? had a set of rear disks that where a mess on the inside face and horrible judder.

id find it hard to see it been that bush as its mid way on the wishbone and only holds the strut, but if thats perished then its safe to assume the bushes on the chassis are the same..

best get jack out and have a good look around :-)

Sounds like bushes, lower arms give them symptons as the wheel goes forward then back.
