Does it do it anytime you hit the brakes, or just at highway speeds and pumping the brakes?

Also, put your year and trim level in your sig so we can have a better idea of whats what here.

If you don't pump the brakes, instead apply them consistenly does it behave the same?

From your description I would agree with the warped rotors theory.

Depends on if you do the work yourself and what quality parts you get. And where you are located.

Cost me $60 for ceramic pads and $0 for new rotors.

Cheapo rotors should be about 20-30 and pads could be as cheap as 20
