Sounds like warped disks.

Are you very hard on your brakes? Warping is usually caused by very hot brakes being rapidly cooled... Usually by big puddles!

Warped discs for sure. Do you keep your foot on the brakes when at lights a lot etc as this creates cool spots like a heat sink where the pas touch and warps discs the more you do it......but more so on solid ones

Always use the hand brake!
