hey just wondeing what you think this is ? get a pulsation on the steering wheel and barly on the brake peddle when breaking moderatly. do you think this is just the break roters being unballanced? when i pull this apart to see what the roters look like what should i look for?
It sounds like classic symptoms of a warped rotor. I don't know you would be able to see it with the naked eye, but you can certainly tell if they are scorched or gouged.

what are the sliders? and how could they warp the rotors?
Those are the pins that the calipers slide on. The calipers are basically giant clamps. Rotors warp either because of hard spots in mfg, sudden cooling after being EXTREEMLY hot (like a dragging caliper), or a dragging caliper. You may not notice a dragging caliper when you change the pads. Always clean and lubricate the sliders at every pad change. Use brake grease, it comes with the better pads. Dragging caliper can heat the rotor too much.
