The rear pads are usualy harder than the front and the harder the pads the more wear there is on the rotors Unless the rotors were worn to the point of replacement they could have had them skimmed.Being soft doesnt make much sense.Have an 03 ba falcon and only replaced our rotors after doing 125000ks The expidition is a similar beast that used the same brake system.Get the rotors skimmed and go to a slightly softer pad to extend rotor life

Just the basics, Brake pads range from $25-65 depending on what kind of quality your looking for. If the brakes are grinding, you will need 2 rotors ranging from about $50-70 per wheel. On top of that, after you pull the wheels you will have to determine if the calipers are frozen or hanging up. Calipers on that truck run about $75 apiece. You didn't specify if it had ABS brakes so I based everything on standart disc brakes. Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

sounds like a wheeel bearing ..very common on this vehicle .or it may very well just be the splash plate behind the rotor rubbing against the rotor this is also common get on the ground ,using maby a length of cardboard so not to get real dirty and look to see if the splash guard is really rubbing if so bend it back out to correct the issue ..if not lift the vehicle off the groung and try moving the wheel from side to side and top to bottom wiggle it is there a lot of play ir is it tight if loose it will most likely be the wheel bearing going bad as well whomever replaced the brakes should have checked this out for youi if you described the problem to them

SOURCE: Pulsating Brakes
The most common cause of brake pulse is wheel bearings, because the rotor wobbles.
The way to tell is that you will also feel it through the steering wheel, when not applying brakes.
If the rotor wobbles, it will also make the brakes spongey, because the wobble will cause some piston retraction, causing a longer throw when applying.
It is usually the fronts that go bad before the back. And one side before the other, often because a bad seal allowed water in. But you can tell by jacking up and feeling for play.
If not a wheel bearing, then I would consider ABS problem, or the rotor was installed wrong.
