Sometimes when I have to stop suddenly my car shivers and looses power somewhat like it's going to die out but then normal idle resumes.

I'm thinking my brake booster is about to fail, or some other component part of my braking system is bad.

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Try disconnecting the brake booster hose to the power-assist assembly, and plug the vacuum hose. Try braking (it will take more force of course) and if the shaking stops, then that shows that there is a defect with the power-assist unit.
