Just got my springs installed. I noticed that when I'm making a turn and accelerate I'm getting a slight shake in my wheel.

Not sure what role the springs play in causing a shake or shimmy, but its now there and it wasnt...

TIA!

Now for my question... I just lowered on progress springs and put on my new rims. I used hubcentric rings and my wheels don't vibrate, but when I brake my steering column and brake pedal vibrates. Any idea why?

Warped rotors

yes i got an alignment and it didnt do it before i put on the new rims and the springs. so i dont think rotors would be the problem unless that is what caused them to warp. and they only shake under hard braking or slowing down from 40

When you put on larger/heavier rims you will feel it much more than stock. I'll bet money on warped rotors..

Or just have them turned.. I had the same problem, turned the rotors and got another 20k out of them
