Default truck shakes when braking

I have a 2001 chevy 2500HD 4x4. I have 182000 miles on it and when i brake it shakes. it got better after replacing the front brakes, calipers, and rotors. but it still shakes when i brake at high speeds. any ideas. and also i would a front end leveling kit make my front hubs go out every 8-10,000 miles. i am tired of replacing them.

my truck did the same thing.. my dads truck does it too.. its most likely a balljoint.. i replaced a lower balljoint on my trck and it quit.. jack the truck up and pick up on the front tire..if it moves alot then its most likely a bad balljoint.. have somebody pickup on the tire and u can look to see wich balljoint.. thats what our problem was.. might be the same..who knows

also warped rotors i believe u can feel in the break its pulsing.. like ABS
