Please help me confirm if this is a FCAB issue!

Read several different threads on FCABs, but it appears that the symptoms vary from a jerk when braking to shuddering at freeway speeds when the brakes are applied.

Just want to get your confirmation that my symptoms are bad FCABs:

1. Steering wheel jerks slightly when brakes are applied suddenly (doesn't have to be an emergency brake). There is no constant braking shudder, apart from the slight jerk when brakes are applied suddenly and again when foot is taken off the brake when I've come to a full stop.

2. Front left hand wheel/suspension squeaks slightly when going over things like speed humps or gutters.

Appreciate any feedback before I go out to purchase and replace them - possibly incorrectly!

Also, when I looked at the FCABs they looked ok...then again, I wouldn't really know what to look for if they were worn...
