vibration when braking downhill?

I own Kia Sorento year 2004, when I am braking downhill I always feel this heavy vibration on my front wheels, can someone explain.

I don´t have brake fluid leaks, the cv joint´s ok, the breaking pads are ok, the brake disk is ok too.


I'm going to suggest you have a slightly warped brake rotor. I realize you said the brake disk is OK, but didn't indicate if you checked it for run-out on the brake lathe or if it is simply still within it's wear specification.

Note that
