I've never had to slam on my brakes before, the one time I did, my brakes have been making a loud grinding sound every time I press my brakes. I looked at my brake pads and they're barely even worn. What could it be?

Do you
have the same problem?

Check for rust between rotor and shield and between caliper and rotor.
