Recently changed front brakes on 2004 Chrysler 300M. Now I have very bad wheel shake when applying brakes and a slight vibration just driving.?

Vibration when applying brakes is most likely warped rotors. Another cause could be loose caliper bolts. The vibration while driving is most likely a tire issue ie (out of balance, broken belt in tire, bent rim). Other possible causes are loose/worn suspension and/or steering parts.

Why would 98 Chevy truck shake at idle?

It it is a very slight shake this may be normal. Engines make vibrations and vehicle design engineers are less likely to waste time and money hiding this vibration on a truck than a car. Generally, trucks are meant to be practical more than luxurious. If it is a severe vibration, your engine may be running poorly or you may have a vibration transfer problem.

Should you be worried about a 2005 sierra 1500 that has a 0.5 rpm idle with a slight vibration while idling?

If you have average mileage on it, you should go get it checked. That is too low for an idle. The vibration is probly from the low idle.

Car shaking when braking?

Usually this is a sign of warped brake rotors. In order to tell if they are warped at the front, you should be able to feel a pulsing sensation through the steering wheel/brake pedal whilst braking lightly at ~100kmh (60mph). If they are warped at the rear (not usually the case but not unheard of), you may feel a pulsing feeling through the brake pedal and a slight vibration through the seat. In order to remedy this, go and talk to your automotive repair shop who should be able to assist you further and find out what the actual cause may be. They may be able to 'machine' the brake rotors (if they are at fault) so that they are no longer warped. If this is not possible, they may recommend replacement brake rotors. In both cases, it is recommended to replace your brake pads so that they mate perfectly to the rotor surface.

What would cause 1998 subaru legacy outback manual transmission noise only happens when driving - not sitting. gets progressively quieter when shifted into higher gears.?

Consider the possibility of a bad differential or wheel bearing. Is it a grindey scrapey noise? If so suspect wheel bearing or differential. If car is lifted off the ground and trans in neutral, frmly grasp each tire one at a time and rotate. If a slight vibration is felt, replace that bearing. This vibration is very slight so pay attention, okay? If not show any vibration, expect a differential (or possibly but not likely transmission) problem.
