It's your rotors! My '02 did the same thing, it got so bad that it was hard to drive. What happens is the rotors are worn to a point that they can not dissipate the heat built up from average driving and essentially warp while driving causing the vibrations. Measure your rotor thickness. I'll have to dig up my paper work to remember what spec is but mine were under by only a few thousandths. Had new rotors put on it all the way around and it is smooth as silk now!
