MY BRAKES COME TO A SCREECHING SUDDEN HALT AFTER REPLACING MY BRAKE PADS.

Replaced front brake pads and now the car stops suddenly and screeches. I cleaed the calipers and lubed them up. I did not apply lube to the front of the pads themselves where they meet the rotor. I never cracked the brake line, as I didnt think it needed to be done. The resivior cap was removed prior to starting to allow fluid to back up when calipers were compressed. Upon finishing I pumped brakes till they were firm. This was my last step.

Do you
