Warped discs on your front disc brakes. They have to be ground down. It
could be that someone tightened the nuts on the wheels too tight and warped
the rotors (discs).

Running though a large puddle of water and rapid cooling a hot disc could
also warp the disc.

Check / correct the balance of the front wheels.

I just had new motor mounnts installed, both front & rear.

After picking up my car I discovered, every time I stopped at a traffic
light, my engine had a rough idle, which could be felt in the steering
wheel. Prior to this my 99 camry idled perfectly. Anyone out there have
any suggestions?.
I am bringing car back to my mechanic tomorrow, who will be doing
diagnostic check. I will share those results.
Is it not annoying, when all of a sudden your car does not run "right"?

Thanks
Mazz
