I changed everything when I changed the pads. I changed the rotors, one caliper, brake hardware and pads. Even the brake fluid.
On the first caliper before I changed it the pads were wearing unevenly, but not now.
I just took off the wheel this morning. There is nothing in the brake pads. I did change them back to the more expensive one I have this morning. Nothing in between the rotor and dust shield.
I did noticed two small things though. The side that's making noise has more drag than the other side. Also, if I were to remove one of the caliper guide pins and raise that side like a clam-shell to check the pads, when I try to put it back down I have to rotate the Piston so it fits. That doesn't happen on the other side. Just goes down like normal.
One last thing I noticed when I took the tire off is when I am rotating the rotor it would reach a point where it drags noticeably and them moves easier. It does this for each rotation. This is with the caliper and brakes on and the wheel off.
