Sounds like your brakes are working properly.

Thank you for your wisdom. I know what it feels like when brakes are working properly....and this isn't it. When I brake I feel a grabbing that "pulses" causing the truck to vibrate to this pulse. Not a smooth gradual stop...and not ABS either. The brakes were replaced less than a year ago and this didn't start until a few months later. I am wondering if the rotor might be warped.....
