    Left or right side? May want to pull the tires off and take a look, could be alot of things, check out all your nuts and bolts and make sure there good and tight and nothing looks out of place.

    Sometimes the pads move in the caliper. Have you used these pads before? Caliper could also be loose and moving forward as it grips the rotor.
