Just be careful, don't come to a complete stop. If you absolutely have to, put the truck in park and get off the brakes. But you're better off picking a spot that's open enough where you can keep driving...
tvsjr is right on. His post above would be exactly how you could confirm if you have pad transfer causing your brakes to "shimmy".
Especially under light braking?

At 60k, I started getting a vibration during braking every time. At first I thought it was a pad transfer and did a few hard stops to clean the rotors. Well, my dashboard almost rattled loose. Came home and pulled a wheel and ran a dial indicator and sure enough, at least the drivers side had tons run out. I dont remember exactly how much, but it was definitely warped. New rotors for the front and powerstop Z36 pads all around. The rear rotors where still true. I'm at 90K now and it still stops great. I only towed few times in the past and mostly under 8K. I'm never hard on the brakes. Ask my wife, she is always telling me to speed up and stop leaving so much of a gap. Not sure what caused it, but I found it odd that rotors would warp warp with lite use by 60k. Point is, warped rotors do exist. It's not always pad transfer. And my rotors warped with only lite use.
