I would go back and double check installation. If everything looks normal, check calipers, they may not be opening up when brakes are released

Definitely check the calipers. For future reference, the cost of replacing the rotors is probably very close to what you paid to have the old ones turned. On most vehicles today it's not cost effective in the long run to reuse the old rotors. HTH. -Jim

"After the lube wore off" what does that mean? Sounds like a stuck caliper or improper installation.

Did someone install the pads backwards?

Exactly what I was thinking, but "after the lube wore" off really bothers me.

Caliper bolt lube?? Maybe?? -Jim

Yeah, but it doesn't really wear off, as in quickly.

Agreed, Bob, but that is the only "lube" I can think of associated with the brakes. -Jim

That or the grease that goes on the back of the pads to keep the squeaks in check.
