Default Pulsing Brake concern....

I have a 2011 gt. yesterday I was out driving and went to brake normal. And there is a pulsing coming thru the petal. Really is evident when I brake hard. Feels like it is coming from the driver side front. My car has 20000 miles on it. It is lowered. Would the pads go that quickly?

Any input is appreciated.

Thanks.

Generally it has nothing to do with your pads. It's your rotors which have become warped due to excessive heat. Could be caused by excessive braking or you could have a brake caliper hanging up.

Yep, get the mag base and dial indicator out
and check that rotor for excessive run-out.
New rotors are in your future, not just new pads...

Be sure and bed them in properly when you do...
