pulsation

I have a 2000 Excursion 2WD. I experienced pulsation when braking so I replaced rotors and front brakes. I also broke a tie rod so replaced the drag link and drivers side tie rod. It's better now but still pulsating. I can gently ride the brake when coasting to a stop and feel it in the driver's front. Did I get bad rotors or is there something else?

Could be a bad bearing. I had a bad bearing (hub assembly) on one of my cars. I went through 2 sets of rotors, pads before I figured it out. Just an idea.

thanks jno. I saw a couple of other threads about hubs and bearings and was kind of thinking in that direction. I'll check it out.

Maybe just jack the front end up and spin the tires to see how it feels, and see if it has any side-to-side movement. Maybe that would give you an idea if there is any bearing problems.
