I changed the brakes on my 14 dart about 6 months ago and after about 3 months they started to pulsate through the steering wheel when braking I replaced then and low and behold once again. They are advance Auto parts brakes. Has anyone else had issue with their products like this? I've never warped a rotor in my life until now I'm not hard on brakes either. Any ideas?

Could be a combo of cheap pads and rotors. Had that issue on my Toyota truck with Autozone parts. Got so bad after a few months it was scary. Got oem pads and Brembo rotors. Lasted 80k+ no warping.

Proper lug nut torque is one thing to check.

Are the pads clearing the rotor when not being used?

Yes I checked that also the wheels are always torqued with a torque wrench.

I have a 2011 F150 and I have had problems with pulsation (frequently mis-diagnosed as "warping") through two rotor replacements. About two years ago I had new pads and rotors installed front and rear. This time I tried seating in the pads. I made six hard stops from 35 down to 5 mph as rapidly as I could, followed by six more from 50 to 5 mph. I then drove the truck for 15 minutes without hard braking to allow the pads to cool.
So far, absolutely no pulsation. The theory is that this lets the binder in the pads stabilize so that pad material won't transfer to the rotors.

What pads are you running with the rotors?

Never used those. But i would try a different pad. What are the pad ratings ? I'd look for an FF pad or GG, nothing less.

You may have rotor deposits and not actual rotor warping.

The Carquest Premium brake pads are rated FF.

I bet you could very well be right about pad deposits.

After replacing two sets of rotors myself due to pulsating brakes I have been informed that actual warping is very rare and scrubbing/cleaning the rotors of deposits will actually solve the problem in a lot of cases.

I think I found your problem....

All kidding aside, get some Napa Ultra Premium coated rotors and Akebono ProAct pads and properly torque the lug nuts and you will be good to go for a long time!

Are your back brakes working properly? I've seen front rotors warp when the back brakes were worn out or out of adjustment.
Are your front hubs clean and rust free? It doesn't take much to slightly tilt a rotor (too much lateral run-out).

How about checking runout upon install, as cos alluded to?
