Why is a loud squeal coming from my drivers side front wheel area?

I just replaced the brake pads and no signs of a warped rotor. What could be causing the squeal and vibrations? and also every now and then when i slow down to stop the brake pedal pulsates like your sliding on ice.

you may not always be able to see a warped rotor. could also have hot spots in the rotor where it got too hot which would cause the pulsating.

also welcome to rf. im in westerville. if u need help workin on truck im not too far down the road.
