shaking steering wheel

Hi, recently I got a serious issue with my 2006 focus. My steering wheel started to shake a bit when driving at 100kph (60mph), but when it comes to braking it is a disaster, steering wheel is shaking very bad. I was trying to solve this problem by balancing my wheels, changing drake discs and pads, both front shock absorbers, silentblocks... but it didn't help.. so I was wondering maybe someone had this problem or have any ideas to solve it? Thanks in advance :)

Hi,

I had a similar thing and found the nuts that hold the coloum to the dash were loose! Tightened them up and it's all good now.  Might be worth a look.

hi I had similar problem vibration at 60 mpg and then some vibration when braking for me it was the balance of my front tyres and steering alignment cost a few quid to fix ide have yours alignment and steering geometry checked they should also be able to tell if any of the tie rods, ball joints, suspension is affecting anything, you could have a worn engine mount hope you find out what it is there's a good link here with quite a list of information :

Update. Problem is still here... I discovered that when I lift car's left side on jack, put car in 4th or 5th gear and release the clutch(when engine is running)) car starts to shake and vibrate... there's nothing similar when right car side is lifted.
