1. make a 'panic stop' or otherwise heat up the brakes
2. change brake pads
3. remove and replace the rotors
Sometimes the pads can leave material on a hot rotor after an 'incident' of quick deceleration.
Incorrect or over torqued lug nuts might cause a problem too.

You gotta find out what would cause that.
Also, I assume when you rplaced everything you were careful about torqueing the lugnuts and stuff?
maybe someone else has a thought but I'd really investigate the caliper assembly and assoc. 'stuff'. Might even try swapping front rotors and throwing in new/different pads.
I hope someoone else responds.

Go make several (10) or so stops from 60-15mph with medium/heavy brake pressure. Do them pretty much back to back. After the last one, drive slowly around and don't use the brakes, allow the rotors to cool down.

If through the steering wheel - then look for something "mechanical", ie - calipers, pads, steering/suspension joints - check they are all doing what they are supposed to.
If through the brake pedal - then look at the rotors, A.B.S if fitted.

Re, the pulsing in the pedal or steering wheel.
Pulsing in the steering wheel, it's most likely front brakes. If you get pulsing in the pedal, it's most likely the rear brakes.
