Default 2004 Yukon front end vibrates when stopping

I have a 2004 GMC Yukon Denali 23,000 orig miles, that when I stop I get a lot of vibration in the front end.
I have had the pads replaced and rotors turned. Front end components are all tight . Tires balanced.
Any thoughts ?

It may simply be the brake shop didn't torque the wheel nuts properly. I had a similar issue, so I loosened the 6 nuts, then torqued them to 100 ft lb in the correct sequence, then 140 ft lb in same sequence. The correct sequence on a 6 stud wheel is 1-4-6-3-5-2. If this doesn't help it may be a defective front hub.

Based on 13 years old and only 23K miles, I can just about guarantee the rotor cooling fins are corroded big time. Resurfacing the rotors removes material and if the cooling fins are in fact corroded, these rotors will forever pulsate. Time to replace the rotors NOT resurface (turn) them.
