    Serious Shaking Between 6-75mph

    So, my truck shakes pretty good between 60 and 75mph. Over 75mph it doesn't shake so bad, just a little. Under 60, it doesn't really shake at all. I figured it is the alignment, but what else might it be?

    Brake Problems

    I have a 93 x and whenever you press the brake there is a loud clank that is audible inside the cab. And whenever you have to brake the wheel will shake and try to pull to right. I think I just need new brakes but any other suggestions would be appreciated.
