Hi

 

Hopefully i can help..

 

First common areas to check would be your discs - this means checking the surface area aswell as the inner surface area too on the caliper piston side..and check for any surface issues..Its also possible to you may have warped disc causing this to travel and be felt up the foot pedal..so bear that in mind.to verfiy that you need to check the run out on the disc using a micrometer to the disc and slowly rotate it to see what reading you get..another cause could be the ABS system kicking in..often this can be caused by damaged sensor or toothed trigger ring the sensors monitior on each wheel..sometimes on the odd occassion this wont be picked up by the ABS system ecu..so again certainly have those check for any small cracks or excess corrosion build up on those..I do hope this helps
