-With applicaton of the brakes at low speeds normal
-Using the brakes above about 40MPH produced severe pulsing and shudder from the front
-Checked all front-end links, rods etc, all seemed tight and sound
-Discovered rotors were waved
-Took off the rotors, observed spotting all around their surfaces
-Had them turned (some places do not turn (cut) cross-drilled rotors)
-Smooooth braking above 40MPH

The moral of the story: If you have brake pulsing and shuddering above 40MPH and you are sure all of the suspension pieces are tight and correct, it is very likely it is your front rotors .....

or Life is good once again.
