Default front end shake when braking

The steering wheel shakes when braking. Most noticeably at high speeds. I am assuming that this is due to warped rotors. Please advise.

Also, does anyone have any advice for removing the brake caliper mounting bracket bolts, so that I can remove the rotors? (I've broken one box-end wrench and my impact won't do it).

Sounds like warped rotors, we've had to use a 1/2 inch breaker bar and impact socket, and smack it with a hammer to break them loose. Be a good idea to repack your wheel bearings before going back togather too.
