Default New brakes and rotors, little noisy.

Ok just did my brakes and rotors, got a great deal on them. they drive great, no pulling, no shaking overall fantastic. However i get a sound not quiet a grinding more of a rubbing, press brakes goes away. I am thing that i might need to hit the grease valve with some lube. To me it seems that to me, what do you guys think?!?!?!?!

Can you duplicate sound when it's on jackstands?

Grease valve?

Maybe your calipers are sticking and dragging.

I assume you replaced front rotors and pads? Is the noise from the front?

Tie rod ends if they have fittings, I believe caliper to abutments are supposed to have some grease when assembled, but check the manual first.
