    Thanks for the input Crawdad. It seems to be getting better as the brake pads wear down. I'm not going to worry about it too much since I can stop fairly quickly, just feels like I'm stopping on a rumble strip lol.

    I had a seized caliper. Don't know why this issue came about as soon as I changed the pads, rotors and calipers.
