It'* probably a warped rotor..does car sort a shimmy side to side when Braking...this usually shows up after replacing w/ new pads...seening that there is LESS clearance between rotor a pad after replacing...

try cleaning them by useing high pressure watter i just used the hose with a nosel on it and torned them both up to where there would be the highest pressure. Then i spraked out the wheel wells and then blasted out the the rims untill I could not see any more black break dust comming out. It that dose not get it out you can jack the car up take the wheels off and use some hot soapy water and scrub it off then let it dry.
