Question about Cars & Trucks
If it is a consistent thump as you apply the brakes, warped rotor. If it happens once, then read dano's reply. Also check the bolts that hold the caliper and caliper mount to the spindle.

May have a loose brake pad or caliper.
Brake pads usually have springs or shims that keep them from moving. Some people leave them off and there's some movement when you apply brakes.

SOURCE: PULSATION WHEN APPLY BRAKES
Even though you replaced the rotors, seems that you will still need to have them resurfaced. This assuming you are experiencing pulsation only when braking.
Hope this helps, Please remember to rate this answer.

Exact same thing happened to me. On my 03 taurus and 03 Windstar. It ended up be worn inner tie rod ends. Would reccommend an inspection of bushings, tie rods etc.
