Did you replace the rotors with rotors made in China? If yes you can either replace them again and hope or take them to a machine shop and have them turned,

I bought from advanced auto. Not sure if chinese. The only thing i can think of is. Is it possiblei put the caliper slder pins in the wrong spots? One pin has a rubber like washer and the other doesnt.


May have to replace the rubber brake line hoses going to calipers if one or both are collapsed on the inside of hose ( can not tell by just looking at it from the outside ) will cause the problem you are having.
