[VIDEO] Grinding noise when braking at low speeds and reversing

Just replaced my front brake pads and rotors because my car had been making this nasty grinding sound when I would start braking at low speeds. It was almost constant, even if I would get into my car and reverse about to leave it would start making this loud whining type sound til put in Drive and started heading down the road. It drives me crazy cause it doesn't happen all the time but it happens most of the time. Sometimes even when I'm doing highway speeds and I have to apply the brakes it will make the grinding/scraping sound. It's kind of embarrassing. But even after the new rotors/pads in the fronts I still hear the problem, it isn't as bad, but still there. I even took some short videos the other day to show how it sounds and when it happens. If anyone could help out it would be great! How could I post the videos here in the thread as well?

This happened to me a couple years back when I had my '94. I would check the dust shields to see if they're bent. Did you grease up the caliper pins?

Alright i'ma put some links up to the videos one is just normal braking and the other is braking at highway speeds. And I did grease up the pins. I will clean them and regrease them some more but what would you consider the best thing to use on them is?

I just use the CRC brake and caliper grease.

After listening to the videos, it sounds (to me) like the brakes are still engaged, hence the squealing. Just out of curiosity, is there any sponginess in the brake pedal?

Did the pads have a metal wear indicator on them? Are you sure you didn't accidentally bend it while installing the pads so it's hitting too early?

Sounds a lot like the clips at the end of the pads are rubbing on the rotor. Check the clips to make sure they are not touching the rotor. I think it was Mike, who posted a video on this years ago. I don't have the link.

First off make sure the correct slide pins are in the right spot. The slide pins that have the beveled flat sides should be on the trailing side of the caliper. In the front that would be on the bottom, not top. The grinding sound is fairly common with certain ceramic compounds in the pad itself. If the calipers aren't stuck and the pins are in the right spot and sliding freely, then I would switch to a different pad.
