I have seen so many crappy brake jobs by "professionals" that just don't make the grade. IF these were cleaned and lubed properly, they may hang up. Since both guys looked at them again, I would hope that it isn't the source.
Unven wear is a sign of not moving properly; may be lubrication, may be a bad caliper as a couple possibliblities.
You can try rotating the wheels so the bent rim is on the front left and see if the vibration seems worse. 5 ounces coupled with a bent rim isn't a good sign. Bent is relative though, I would have to see how bad to know better.
