    Vibration braking = brake rotors out of round, end of story.

    Any or all of the rotors may be causing the vibration.

    Visit a local shop that utilizes a newer on car brake lathe (like Pro Cut or Hunter). This will give a perfect cut to all rotors and verify they are absolutely true.

    After this, verify pads are very thick (nearly new) and that they are anchored appropriately in the brake calipers.
