Front Brakes

My 08 I recently bought had some vibration in the pedal, when braking. I took it by the local shop for diagnosis, and they stated I had a cracked or warped rotor. I ordered new Motorcraft rotors, and pads but ended up being sent the wrong pads. I went and picked up some of Orileys Ceramic house lifetime guaranteed pads and considered it done. The brakes were a real pain in the *** to get to in the first place, wheels were stuck on, and PB blaster and a few wacks of the hammer on the tire fixed that. I took a wire brush on every surface in contact with the rotor and cleaned the rust off, installed the new pads after also replacing a bad caliper pin boot, that I found on the drivers side. While doing so I noticed a split in the caliper piston boot, I left it and continued on while waiting for my new caliper to come in. Got over to my passenger side and saw the rotor cracked from the inside out. Assuming this was my issue, I thought for sure I had my issue resolved. Well, now a week later, the vibration is back, when braking, and I am getting some squeaking. I followed the break in procedure for the brakes doing some 40 - 0 moderate stops and the rotors didnt get hot. Any Ideas on why it could still be vibrating in the pedal and now squeaking?
