Another Braking Issue

I know there have been alot of threads about issue but i have not found any that fit my situation. I just replaced my rotors and pads last week. I started driving the next day and when i hit a certain point when braking, the steering wheel starts to shimmy. I Torqued all the bolts to the right specs so i know that not it. Could it be that one of my calipers is shot or maybe a bubble in the line? or maybe a rotor is bad.

Thank again

Sometimes new pads will "deposit" some pad material on the discs. This can cause a shimmy until the pad material is cleaned off by use. Or, could be some other problem with your system.
