Your rotors may be warped from over torquing the lug nuts. Or something is worn and needs replaced or loose which in this case I would have it put on a lift and have a good look around.

I've seen that happen on drum brakes but not on disk .. on drum brakes if somethings loose the leading edge of a brake shoe grabs the drum when brakes are applied and locks the wheel momentarily

yes sirreee , pull the drums off and make sure the retaining springs are alive and well and tight , I was surprised when I got the rebuild kit/springs for under $20**
