I'll try that, but isn't it usually from rotors that are warping?Moved to "Wheels, Tires, Brakes & Suspension"
Here's a good write up on how to replace the front pads and rotors:
"Pulsing" generally means you have an uneven build-up of brake pad material on the rotors.
You could try cleaning up that build-up first before replacing anything.
From 60mph, hit the brakes hard and hold them there till you're down to 10mph. DO NOT STOP!!!
Do this 5 or 6 times, without letting the brakes cool in between.
After that, drive without hitting the brakes at all (if possible) for a good 5-10 minutes (50-70mph) to let them cool.
This is basically the same procedure you use to bed in new pads and rotors.
You're just doing it again, to evenly distribute the pad material.
1) Obviously, you're going to need to find a very lightly travelled road to do all that in order to be safe.
2) If you can, do the entire procedure twice within a short period of time for best results.
By the way, here is a great thread with all sorts of brake information:

Usually you can get your discs machined to avoid the high cost of new discs.what do you mean pulsing? and what do you mean machine?
if your rotors are going bad it would be best to replace them.
and brake pads are pretty easy to replace, the only hard part is that stupid metal piece that holds them in.
Rotors actually do not warp, insted, on a 1 piece rotor, the inside endge can cup or lean to the inside.I'll try that, but isn't it usually from rotors that are warping?
Tell that to a Honda engineer. I hate the term cutting a rotor.Machining rotors should never be an option due to the fact that the hard spots in the rotor than contribute to unenven rotor thickness. These hard sposts can deflect the cutting tool or further in the futur will just come up agian in the feel of your pedal.
