you should have your brakes inspected by a professional brake mechanic and get a detailed written estimate.

you could have loose caliper slide pins or bushings..

you could be missing or have misinstalled brake pad support shims.. these go in the caliper bracket that support and center the pads..

these keep the pads from vibrating.. some of the aftermarket pad support shims may be china knock offs where they copied a part to make their tooling instead of engineering a part or researching tooling dimensions that are available to the brake manufacturing industry from manufacturers..

i have gotten so much garbage aftermarket brake hardware lately. i have started to buy brakes pads and hardware from car dealer parts departments.

you could also have worn ball joints.. worn tie rod ends..
