I was thinking it may be ball joints or a bad tie rod but I tried checking them when I replaced the anti rattle clips that some decided the truck didn't need at the last brake job and there was no play in either. What do you guys think? I'll check the control arm for movement. It scares the hell out of me I tell ya what.
Sounds like warped rotors to me also. Trying getting them machined, although they will probably warp again from the heat and you might just be better off getting some new performance rotors and pads.

Have you had work done to eliminate the possibility of tires? I only say that becasue you say its not tire related with certainty.
