Brakes Grab and Release

My brakes have been grabing hard and then releasing. I notice it more when I brake slowly. Someone said my rotors might be warped. Has anyone had this problem and what did you do to solve it? If I have to replace them would I be better off with aftermarket rotors or just sticking with OEM?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Is this happening in a fast pulsing way, or intermitently?

Your rotors are warped. OEM is a good replacement, but others will chime in with some options to consider.

Replaceing the rotors is as easy as chngeing the oil.
