My old Mk3 fiesta 1300 sways to the left then the right when I apply the brakes, it's more obvious with speed.

I've replaced both rear shocks because they had had it, and both front lower arms (one more recently and the other around 1,500 miles ago).
I have tested the brake balance on a brake tester and made sure all the wheels spin freely I.e no brakes binding on.

Any ideas??

exact same problem i had, turned out to be front passenger side brake flexi hose has collapsed. car was all wonky like.
bushes can cause issues too.
i replaced both the front hoses, got them from eurocarparts for like a tenner each or less.
