My FJ suffered from the same issue as many Toyota trucks somewhere during the life of the rotors/pads. The OEM rotors/pads heat up and the steering will shutter when coming to a stop. The hotter the brakes the more pronounced the shutter. I installed the new rotors/pads (front only) in one hour with the help of a friend. Break in was simple and quick. Braking is now smooth and precise.
Note: Both the alignment and wheel balance should be checked as a first step if there is any doubt.
