    Question Brake noise after replacing calipers?

    So I finally complete a brake job that consisted of replacing all rotors, front calipers (due to ceased caliper pins) and brake pads. I bled the system using the pressure method and a mityvac. The brakes grab really well and the pedal is firm and returns to normal height. I let fluid leak out when removing the calipers so I'm wondering if air got into the ABS causing the noise. The noise sounds like running over road dividers. Sorry the best I can describe it. It only happens during hard braking (hard for breaking them in not slamming them) but the brakes do not pulsate? any help is appreciated

    sometimes warped rear rotor rumble but you don't really feel a pulsation like you would with warped front rotors

    Well figured it out... It was dark when I finished and the reservoir seemed up to the line but it was just stained from the old fluid. This morning I checked and the fluid was above the max line. So took some out and no more noise. Thanks for the response guys
