Mine is a 2006 Equinox LS AWD. Last Saturday I replaced my pads and rotors. They were in a pretty bad shape. Before that, the vibration was unbearable at the steering wheel and in the front. After replacing, it stopped, but started doing that again, except for the steering wheel. It happens while doing a light braking close to a 50%, well. If I'm driving over 40 or 50mph. The vibration is on the pedal, and actually the entire vehicle, especially on the front.
Do you

Did you actually use a micrometer and a dial indicator to check its roundness and parallelism to rule it out.

Could also be an wheel alignment/suspension/tire problems

Well.I didn't do the installation. And about wheel alignment, my car was kinda misaligned, but it was just because of tire pressure, LF tire had only 16 psi. I'm going to check it out again because it was kinda odd, the other three had pretty much the same pressure, between 26 and 28 psi. But that one.16 psi. But I still don't think it has something to do with the awfull brake pedal vibration I'm getting, right?
