Rear brake is smooth as silk, but the front brake is odd. At the end of braking before a stop (say.. 10 mph and under) the front end bounces if I have the front brake applied.

Thinking this is probably a warped rotor but wanted to see if any of you have encountered this? My workaround has been to just use the rear brake more but I don't want her coming unsettled every time I pull the front

Usually front rotors are warped or uneven surfaces. My 13 had that also and it was traced to not actually warped and in spec but on rotor was .0015 thicker in one part of the circle then the other. Replaced and all good since.
