Well that sucks then, If you've already changed the rotors then you had to remove the clip, or it came off somewhere along the way. Did you actually change the rotors or just the pads? If you didn't do the brakes yourself, then it is probably worth a check to make sure the clips are gone.

If so that doesn't help us with determining why you are getting the shimmy now - unless it is a bent wheel. So if the clips have all been removed, the bent wheel is the next thing to check.

This is leaving me stumped, you don't want to automatically assume it is a bent wheel though. There could be a number of factors.

You should get the wheels balanced, when they are doing that they should be able to tell if it is the wheels problem.

Im really stumped... Were the fronts put on on the right side? You usually don't want to switch wheels from side to side, just front and back.

Merry Christmas. Put the front on jacks. Take a concrete block and clamp a coat hanger or something to it with a small gap between the end of it and the wheel. Spin the wheel and watch the gap, it should remain pretty close to the same. If the gap gets bigger on one side or the other, the wheel is bent. If it remains the same all the way around, take them back and have them balanced again.

Ok this sounds stupid but are all the lugs tight and torqued to 150ft lbs? Sometimes the average shop can't spot a bentwheel

I've never heard of fixing an alloy wheel. Not saying It's not possible, just never heard of it.
