96 and 97 Explorer Front Brake help

Sorry, this may have been repeated but I did not see it. I have done many brake jobs in my time and this is the first time this has happened to me.

I resurfaced the rotors and replaced the pads on the 97 EB edition and now when backing up with the wheel turned, it gets a bad vibration. On the 96, all I had to do was replace the pads so I did not take the rotors off. On the 96, I get the vibration badly when I turn the wheel. Any advise? I am confused as to where this vibration is coming from and why when I put the brakes back together there was so much play on the 97. I am lost and I am not finding any help from google regarding this problem.

Thank you all in advance for your insight into this matter.

Regards,

This sounds weird. I can only think that maybe the rotors weren't on straight when you put the wheels back on. When you put the wheels back on did you make sure that there was no play in the wheels before you tightened the lug nuts? I had this problem on my sho and it ended up being a rotor that wasnt on straight.

The wierd thing is now the 96 completely stopped vibrating through the steering wheel when I turn it.
