Might be one or some of the suspension components are worn. Ball joints, tie rod ends, bushings, struts, etc.

Tom's right about suspension components, so check those out carefully, I had this happen to on an Audi, checked everything out could not find any suspension problems, I rechecked the new rotors on a brake lathe and they were punched out of center, replaced them again and the problem went away.
