Question Throbbing brakes

I just had my B&B out on the road for the first time today and I noticed that the brakes feel a little spongy and seem to pulse when braking. Would warped calipers cause this or maybe the proportioning valve? The front brakes are 9" discs and the rears are 11' discs. I know it sounds backwards but thats how it came from B&B. Also does anyone know if one of the aftermarket 11"
disc kits for mustang II will bolt up to my front end? Thanks for any advice....Jim

Well Jim, for starters did you use an air impact wrench on the lug nuts? If you did, most wrenches have 250+ lbs of torque. Warped rotors. Hand torque the lug nuts to 95 lbs. On the spongy feeling, you need to rebleed the brakes. Yes we do sell 11" brake systems. Rotors, calipers and hoses, and brackets. You can talk to Barry on Monday, Bryan will be back on Tuesday.
