Question about 2002 Pontiac Sunfire
I just changed my front pads and rotors, heavily sprayed them with brake cleaner, (ABS safe). I dont know if this relates but i didnt experience this with my old gear.
Did you install the brake pad spring anti rattle clips? Many leave this out.

SOURCE: Brakes pulsate real hard
That is just the ABS system at work. It is supposed to prevent your wheels from locking which often makes the brake pulsate, especially in wet weather or or snow or ice. The only way to really stop this is to disable to ABS by unplugging it and removing the fuse. This will make the ABS light appear in your dash, but your brakes will stop pulsating.

SOURCE: rear brake pads
try going to the site below here as well as reading this, it's really helpful and informative, it's a nice step by step. braking systems, when it comes to changing the brake pads hasn't really changed much with modern technology, just remember to used the proper tools to compress all the pistons equally, and also if your pistons have that cross going over the top of them then you have to use a pair of needle nosed pliers to turn the piston counterclockwise this will compress the piston.....hope this and the site are helpful....good luck and happy wrench turning!

Hello, one "trick" is to grab a big hammer and hit the face of the rotor (the part that goes on the hub between the lug studs, NOT the brake pads ride on) several times. A lot of the vehicles I have done this with you really have to whack between the lugs pretty hard and a lot of times. Just make sure you don't hit the lug studs.

SOURCE: 1999 Pontiac Bonneville SE 3800 ABS Brake pedal will eventually reach floor after stopping while hold car stopped. Brake pads replaced less than 5000 miles ago. Fluid level at max and does not drop. O
I would replace the MASTER CYLINDER. BLEED AIR from master cylinder BEFORE INSTALLATION. Hope this helps

warped brake rotor have you had it serviced if so the over tightend your lugs causing your rotors to warp... does it pull when you brake?
