2001 Blazer 4x4 DS front brake pulsation
Everytime I apply the brake, there is a pulsation that appears to come from the DS front. Took off the tire to inspect and couldn't see anything visible. Tires were recently rotated.
Thanks for the help!

Thanks Z71 guy & vncj96! The rotors were installed last November after the truck was purchased. I think that's kinda fast for them to warp. Perhaps the quality of the rotors wasn't that good? Other factors??

its very posible they put in a low grade rotor i always use napa ultra premium rotors, poor quality pads will cause them to warp, i recommend wagner thermo quiet or monroe semi metalic pads

Did you wash the truck right after getting home just before this started? I had machined my rotors perfect, than like a fool washed the truck one day before they cooled. Killed them. When you spray cold water through the wheels and hit the hot rotors, you rapidly cool one side causing the warping.When you hear hoofbeats, look for horses not zebras.
