Default Another Wilwood Caliper Issue

ok guys so i faced another problem with my wilwoods. I got the squeal back alone with a grinding noise since i washed the car. Everytime i brake the caliper/pads squeal. The second problem is that when i let go the brake before the car comes a complete stop i get a grinding noise. its like your braking and when your car is about to come to a complete stop the light turns green and you press on gas and that when i get the grinding noise just for 2 seconds and it goes away.i can feel it in steering and brake/ gas paddle. It only happens after i apply brake doesn't matter if I'm turning or going straight.i have the car on jack stand and put it in drive and no nosie at all. What it could be guys? These brakes making the car look a junk. To me it seems like sticky calipers not releasing. Not ever gonna buy a wilwood kit in my life. Wilwood --->

Man you having way too many issues... You need to take it to a professional, not knocking your skills... But I would let the people who deal with brakes on a daily basis take a crack... Unless you a mechanic then I could understand your frustration...and my apologies...
Also you running with stock 18's or you running with aftermarket rims.... Double check your clearance in between caliper and wheel...

It seems to me that a few of the complains are following washing the vehicle.
What I would recommend is getting a small can of hi temp antiseize and lubricating all the moving/contact areas. Im almost certain this will eliminate most if not all of the noise.

The vibration in the pedal upon brake application is ususally 1 of 2 things.
1. your rotor or rotors are warped.
2. your pads are seized within the caliper brakets, and upon brake application the pad can't find its way into the groves that it cut into the rotor and is binding untill you slow way down and then the rotor spins much slower and the pad can grab the rotor in a more neutral fashion.

Also, it could be that the brackets is not centered and the caliper is not sitting 100% parallel to the rotor centerline.
