Does the car jerk when you stop, or can you make it stop so gently that you can't really tell when it stopped moving by letting up on the brake as you get close to motionless?

If it always jerks, even with very light pedal pressure, the rear calipers are sticking (or the fronts, or both).

If the rears are locking up, I'd suspect that the fronts are sticking and you are braking with the rears only!
