When I brake I get a vibration through the brake pedal and the steering column. If I brake hard I get the vibration when I start to brake but it stops if I keep the pressure on.  I suspect the pads because I have replaced them recently but I didn't the vibration until a couple of weeks later. The  tie rod and bottom arm rubbers look good, but I will replace them anyway and I will change the pads and probably the disks as well but I would welcome any other suggestions before I go shopping.

Also flush your hydraulics, you might have old fluid with a bit of air in.
