Default front end shimmy

I have a 98 camaro with a big block chevy engine. wilwood brakes all around. Stock front struts. Problem is after running 1/8 mile even if i just touch the brakes the steering wheel shimmys. The harder i push the harder the wheel shimmys. while coasting after run the car is fine. But touch brakes and woww look out. I've taken off rotors and put them on a brake lathe. perfectly straight. Put tires on a balancer and no problem. Realigned front end. nothing. cleaned rotors with 100 grit air sander. Bought new pads. Oh i have 10 runs on this setup. Shimmied 9 times. New bushings new tie rod ends, stock rack. I''m at wits end.,.could front end toe in be wrong for the big block chevy at 122 in 1/8. Stock factory setting on front end specs for alignment. Any suggestions will be appreciated. I'm sure this isn't something only i'm stuck with.
