So I tore everything apart again and did a thorough cleaning ov everything. I noticed that cleaning all of the grease out of the caliper pin holes and re-greasing them helped eliminate the majority of friction between the rotors and pads.
Now with everything back together and brake bled, and the wheel still in the air, I noticed that there is a “high spot” that the inner brake pad comes in contact with the rotor. To see if it was something with that wheel specifically or the rotors from this company, I lifted the other wheel and spun it, and it did the exact same thing. So I’m thinking that the rotors are either warped or badly machined from the factory. Off to Schwab to have them see what’s up.
