Default my '02 WRX shakes/vibrates badly when I brake, and come to a stop??

i had brake work done at olympco muffler and brake about 5 months ago. at the time, they saved me a crapload of money, but maybe not??? i purchased the OEM brake kit from my dealership, but they were charging 300+ bucks for installation??!! RIDICULOUS! therefore, i went to a local muffler and brake shop called olympco. they charged me 80 bucks!!! everything seemed okay...no vibrations, nothing. they turned the rotors, and everything. however, everytime i brake now, my car vibrates and/or shakes badly?? would this be a frontend alignment sort of thing??

sounds like your brake rotors are warped, gonna need to replace them, once they have been cut once chances are they are now to thin to cut. There would have to be measured.

If the rotors can be resurfaced, get them done.
If not, replace with new rotors. That should fix it.
