    1998 Accord EX 5-speed sedan...I have new tires, alignment check was good, and just had front brakes and rotors replaced. When I drive on the interstate and quickly depress and release the brake pedal, my steering wheel begins to shake. Once I get off the interstate and make a complete stop and then jump back on the interstate, it doesn’t shake anymore until I quickly depress and release the pedal again. Could this be the caliper piston(s) are sticking or have something to do with the brake master cylinder?

    Thanks!

    So it doesn't shake when you are braking only when you let off the brakes?

    Correct. It doesn’t seem to do it when I gradually depress and release the pedal, only after I’ve quickly depressed and release the pedal when I’m cruising at higher speeds.

    I’m wondering if it could be the power steering pump.
