Rotors? Ball Joints? Arms? Help!

Hi everyone,

Thanks for you wisdom and experience; I'm hoping you can help here.

I have a '96 LS400 and when I apply the brakes, the car feels like someone is rapidly slamming a baseball bat back and forth between the front tires. I was told that this is a rotor problem, but I'm also concerned because when I hit one of the many Metro Detroit potholes I get a loud and heavy thud. It feels like the car has fallen off I-75 and landed on the street below. Surprisingly, I don't feel any shaking in the steering wheel, but there is great disturbance in the brake pedal. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

LexSmoov

Update: BTW, I posted a concern a few months back regarding my power steering and air conditioning going out. I went under the hood and found it was a belt that had dried up, shredded, and choked itself around the fan blade and spoke.

Took a half hour to strip away the wired mess and only 10 minutes to replace the new belt! Easy fix.
