+1 on tie rod ends. i had a shake at 65 plus, and braking anywhere above 40mph. did the wheel shake test, took it apart and the outer tie rod ends were shot, after removing the nut they fell out no hammer needed. rotors are warped a touch but this cut my vibration or "shaking" by 80%

Pick the front of the car up.
put your hands at 9 and 3 on the tires and gently shake back and forth. If there feels like there is any "Play" you are looking at inner or outter tie rods.
Now put your hands at 12 and 6 and begin to push back and forth with each hand. If you feel "play" here you are looking at a hub assembly.
Take a pry bar or cro-bar and get under the car where the ball joints are. Pry between the spindle and lower control arm. If the lower ball joint is busted it will flex and be visible.

It isnt the pads. I have hawk pads and this doesnt happen. How is your wheel alignment. My friend has an VIII, shook very bad in his steering wheel. He got an allignment done and it was all good to go. Has your car been lowered with coils or coilovers? If it has, I would recommend an allignment if you havent already done so.
had the same issue with my girls evo...noticed it after having some fun at the auto bahn in joliet, il. found a great price for brakes & rotors on ebay and replaced the cals as well and now its back to normal.
If it would be caused by tie rods, which ones most likely??? Outer or inner??
Well, you raise the car and check for play in the steering. If there is play then check the outer tie rod ends. You can see any movement. If they are okay then it has to be the inner or maybe play between the rack and pinion. I've also heard of the entire steering rack coming loose and moving.
All these things are kinda unlikely except the outer tie rod ends. I had to replace them on my DSM.
