Very Low Speed Shaking

edited March 2 in Chevrolet
Sometimes when I brake the truck shakes HARD. It feels as if I have the front tires turned as far one direction as possible and then I try to drive forward. That is how the shaking is. It only happens when I am braking to a stop at very low speed. if I brake to a stop from a normal 55 MPH or so it brakes and stops fine. it is only when I am braking at a low speed such as moving through a drive thru or moving up a sport at a stop sign or easing down a lane in a store parking lot.
I have cleaned the throttle body and I have no lights on. Not ABS, not Stablilitack, not anything.

Help please....

    With no warning lights on and the fact that this is happening at low speeds that suggests a base brake or suspension issue. But that is as close as I can get without driving this, feeling it for myself, and inspecting your truck. You might have someone else watch the truck and wheels from the outside as you make the problem occur. The other person will need to watch to see if the wheel(s) move front to back in the wheel wells.
