Thanks Andy
Only noticed it through the steering wheel, brake pedal was firm
I guess that points more to suspension than brakes
Warped disc rotors can also resonate into the top suspension arms or caster rod bushes if they are worn will cause a shimmy in the steering wheel.
get them checked aswell as checking you're rotors.
You have to really stand on the brakes on a z32 to feel the abs work even then its not very intrusive, that's good I guess :P
Good luck
