It's not a vibration. Rather a pulse felt on the brake pedal only when the a/c is on. Is it the A/C pump? Is it a belt? Is it something else?

Before you go and take off your belts, I'd try checking the ps resevoir and/or look for noticeable leaks underneath (front driverside). My ps pump had a leak so I replaced it. So far so good!
