Hello I will help,

If you feel the vibration in the steering wheel and the brake pedal you need to replace the front rotors. If you feel it in the brake pedal and the seat of your pants you need to replace the rear rotors. I suspect you need to replace all four to get it smooth again. This is not ABS.

Please let me know what questions you have

Thanks
