Stopping issues

Hey guys I have a problem with my truck and stopping. When ever I apply my brakes my truck rocks back and fourth. It only does it when I'm going over 40mph and try to stop. A friend of mine says it seeems like a warped rotor. By the way my truck is a 88 1/2 ton chevy. Recently I had to replace my front tires due to broken belts inside them. The truck rocks like the tre belts are broken, but only when I try to stop. Could the shaking or rocking motion come from some where other than the rotors?

You will normally feel a warped rotor in the brake petal when the brakes are applied. A warped rotor would be there at any speed not just over 40. I am not really sure what you mean by rocking back and forth. Does the truck have antilock brakes? I have seen them do some strange things. Jack it up and check the front end for loose or worn parts. A bad tie-rod end can cause a vibration when hitting a bump or stopping.

454 I do feel it in the pedal when I apply the brakes. I will inspect my front end though.
