Humming coming from brakes

Anyone have a humming coming from the brakes wen you give a light/ medium pressure over about 1000 feet, lets say someone wont go down the hill fast enough, forcing you to ride the brakes to maintain speed. Or like idiots do here which is stop 200 feet ahead of the light and creep on the brakes forcing you to stay heavily on them to stop. It's been getting worse and worse along with the knocking in the front passenger rotor.

I hate that. Check your calipers to make sure they aren't sticking, apparently this issue is wide spread among various Ford models dating back to the Escort. The solution I have read on an F-150 forum is to replace the rubber brake like with a steel brake lines.

Also, have you changed the Rotors since you have owned it?

Nope. The last owner smashed the pedal down because when I drove the first time it had a tiny knock in them. I really hope its not the brake line. Is it front or back?

I would start by making sure the rotors aren't warped. If it is the brake line, and calipers it's the front.
