Various thoughts on this.
Something should have been doe with the rotors, replaced or turned, the pads do not mesh up with the worn ones. I just re-did a lousy brakes job yesterday that someone just slammed pads on on. There are important details to doing a brake job right and getting good perforfance.
-Always ajust the rear shoes when doing a front brake job if there are drum brakes in back.
-Always clean the caliper bolts, slides, anti rattle clips and caliper brackets with a wire wheel or brush. coat the parts with quality lube.
Also if the feeling your getting is not consistnat as you say, pay atten to the "when" it happens. A pulsation of the rotors are most common when slowing from a highway speed as the rotors warp temporarily. IF this is the case, replace them...rarley can you machine them anymore.
