What did you torque the axle nut too?
IF this were mine, I would look close at the brakes. May not be the source, but they are admittedly bad.
Frankly...For the vast majority, Rotors are no longer machinable....and still functionable.
If you need em, replace em. When if it doesn't solve the problem. Fair chance it will.
Get new pads too. THey both need a flat surface to meet .
Look at the bracket..It there wear into it or is it flat so pads can slide?
Any grooves..replace it.
The pins, boots and caliper holes are often a problem if they don't work together.
The pins MUST be clean and well lubed.
Very often with these it the corrosion builds up behing the boot in the caliper hole the boot sets in. It swells and the pin can't move.
The Pin MUST move freely. The pads must move freely.
MAke sure the caliper is installed so that the hose is not twisted but, relaxed.
