Do you have aftermarket wheels on the car? Check the back of the wheels, make sure they are free of debris and rust where it contacts the front rotors. Check the torque on the lug nuts. make sure they are all torqued evenly. Aftermarket wheels or lugs may not be mounting properly, check the application.

Sounds like warped brake rotors. Do you feel the pulsation in the steering wheel?

if it has pads than the roter can be worped
