RE: steering wheel shaking
If the steering wheel shakes even lightly there's something wrong with those front rotors. Perhaps a hard spot that didn't clean up properly on the machine or maybe they got dropped afterward. There may be some crud / rust / scale on the back side where they sit on the bearing hub and are not laying flat to the mating surface. I have seen non-vented rotors (solid but rather thin) that just warp easy during the first few stops from heat or with improper torquing of the wheels. Some of them are easy to cut undersize and may be too thin so prone to warping. IOW, they should have been replaced instead of machined.

Let us know what you find.
