I think your rotors need to be turned and or replaced. To me it sounds like one is out of round causing the shutters. New brake pads alone will not solve the problem. dorjbrun@gmail.com

Yes could be rotors, but if it doesn't do it all the time I would look at tie rod ends, ball joints and steering linkages. Also might want to look at wheel balance. If the vibration gets worse with speed you might have a two fold problem possibly wheel balance and linkage/s. Or linkages and rotors...etc....

I've had this type of problem before and my driveshaft was flogged out. Turn your wheels full lock right and grab the driveshaft and see if you can move it up/down and side to side.
