    Is it front discs?

    Discs rarely "warp". It could be down to bad hubs or worn suspension components (drop links, ball joints, control arm bushes etc.). The term warping is usually used and it's eithier one of the faults I mentioned, which are temporarily hidden by new discs, or un-even pad material transfer (sitting with foot on brake when hot). Ensure you follow the correct bedding in procedure.

    You can attempt to remedy discs with un-even deposts by applying the bedding in procedure at any time which to me is a series of braking firmly from a high speed say 60mph to 10mph - around 10 times, without stopping!

    Could the wheels be buckled? Would that effect it?

    i thought that there were two (driver error) ways discs get warped,
    #1 the above mentioned sitting on the brake pedal with hot discs, - say after beating traffic into a traffic jam, (lol)
    0r
    #2 hitting puddles or rather getting hot discs wet somehow.

    on your travels
    you dont drive through a ford/stream crossing or stick it in a carwash with hot brakes do you?
