judging by your description, sounds to me like you need to replace your rotors. This tends to happen when your rotors are warpped

Jack Dabsy will become famous soon enough
I would agree, warped rotors would cause this...
Steering-rack, tie-rod ends or even ball-joints could cause it too...
Maybe a combination ?

Eso es todo!
