Make sure the lug nuts are torqued properly. Torque specs for your truck
is 150ft lbs and is listed in the owners manual. If lugs are torqued
unevenly, the rotors will warp and cause the pulsing. At this point,
with them already pulsing, about the only thing to be done is have them
turned, and make sure any time the lugs are tightened, they are torqued
