Why Does My Steering Wheel Shake When I Drive Fast AND Hit The Brakes

When i’m driving relatively fast (65 mph or faster) my steering wheel starts to shake. It also shakes when I hit the brakes from fast speeds (for example, when I am getting off the highway). Any ideas on what that is?

Other symptoms my car is having and all seemed to start at the same time….

When I drive on a bumpy road at slow speeds I can hear something bumping under my car.. sounds like metal bouncing up and down… loose exhaust?

When I turn the wheel all the way to the left it makes a metal grinding noise (imagine turning the wheel all the way to the left, and start driving slowly from a complete standstill).

Any ideas? I don’t know if ALL of the above has to do with eachother.. but it all seemed to start at the same time.
