Default wearing bearings & long brake pedal stroke?

anyone seem to be getting this symptom?

if i go through a series of hard turns w/o braking and then come upon a straight section where i need to brake, my brake pedal stroke seems to be longer than usual and it throws off my braking distances.

i confirmed this w/ gary sheehan and he mentioned that i could very well have premature worn front bearings. the reason behind the longer pedal stroke is because the worn bearings are allowing the axles to deflect more than usual and thus allow the rotor to tilt/angle/deflect w/ respect to the caliper thus pushing the pistons further back into the caliper. thus, when i apply the brakes, the resevoir has to push more fluid to reset the caliper pistons.

anyway, does anyone seem to having this anomoly or just me?

please let me know!!!
