help please brakes

hi there i have just recently brought my scooby bout 3 months ago and its been sound untill 2 weeks agoi started to get a annoying scraping sound at the rear brakes so i changed my rear disc and brakes and it was still there. so i tried another garage and they said it was a corroded back plate on o/s/r causing spring to make contact with reluctor ring so they bent it bk4 now. put it through a mot no problems it flew through. then my clutch started sliping so i put it staright in to the garage to get replaced. but on the way home i was booting it up the m4 and went to brake and the brake pedal went hard and then all of a sudden my car starting swirving around the road really scary it sems to do it everytime i go above 100mph does any 1 have an idea what it could be
thanks

probably a sticking caliper. At that speed the car will be a nightmare to control.

Sounds like time for a stip out and clean on the brake system, you don't need that happening at those speeds.
