My 2008 Ford Escape when I brake my car from the speed 40mph up wheels are vibrate very bad, I bring my car back to dealership to check they told me I need to change my front brake pads and rotors. I bought a pair of after market premium quality brake pads and rotors and get the licensed mechanic to replace the old one after replacing the new brake pads and rotors the problem is still there. Please advice what is the problem with my escape.

Apart from front, the rear might need attention.
As to front brakes, was there any difference before and after replacement of parts?

Check the sterring linkakes and suspension arms for damage to bushes and ball joints.
