No inkling of a clue what [whole front end "steering"] includes without a list.



From just what's been typed could also be fluid or grease on a pad, or, the same on a rotor that burned in during bedding, or, crystallized pad(s) from incomplete / absent bedding-in procedure.



Any or all that could spell the difference between new rotors as posted above, or do-over with new pads, or both.


Also, any "new" front-end parts installed incorrectly could allow enough play to induce a "pulsing" during stop.

I doubt whoever did your brakes actually put NEW rotors on it,
they probably turned them or didn't replace them at all.

Before throwing a bunch of parts at this you might consider that it is the ABS system pulsing the brakes. A bad sensor or wire may not set a code but will cause a pulsing in a wheel.


One might remove the ABS fuse(this will set codes) and take a careful test drive to see if the pulses go away. Removing a battery cable from the battery should clear the codes if the codes do not disappear after several drive cycles.


A factory service manual may help you track down a intermittent ABS issue.

lol Nab, yah I took that [ive] as "I have" thus alluding to him doing the whole front end himself. So for the OP, if a shop in fact did this work then post up the receipt so we's knows more (well, actually anything) about what got done. And how.

Sorry been busy but yes when i got the car i replaced upper and lower a arm,tie rods,center link, and the pitman arm since i was replacing all of that might as well replace the rotors and pads soby doing all of that i still get the pulsing and shaking while braking

Had a similar issue recently and installed some turned rotors and new pads .
Problem gone.
Didn't even have to bleed it.
