hi m8. as said before it could be a siezed calliper or slides, also looking at your picks, i cant see any shims between the pads, this will cause the pads to vibrate and move about in the carrier aswell, especially if its cheap pads thats been fitted as these dont fit exactly at the best of times.

heres a pick of the pad fitting kit there should be 2 shims on each side(if they are called shims lol) one at the bottom and one at the top of each carrier.

i found this has cured this fault before, also check your strut top mountings and lower suspension arm bushes,and ball joints for play as this can also have the same effect.

good luck bud
