If a car is shaking when the brakes are being applied, it is likely that the front end is out of alignment. The tie rod ends or shocks could also need replacing.

You may also find that the brake rotors are warped.

What causes car and wheels shake while driving and braking?

If it only happens when you are braking I would suspect warped brake rotors. Other reasons the front end could shake would include unbalanced tires or the vehicle needing realignment.
