brakes seems messed up

hey guys I have gsr disc brakes all around
and my car is making some kind of noise when I brake now
it seems like it is only coming from the front brakes and the noise seem like kind of grinding noise but not a high pitch one
also keep in mind that I just changed all my rotors and my pads. another thing is that my front brakes get really really hot.

I am checking my front pads tomorrow but I just changed them so I don't know what it could be.

any feedback would be helpful
thanx guys

pads squeel. It's normal if they are a semi-metallic material. Try some disc-quiet, see if that helps. It's helped on a few customers I've had

yes I did put them on right
but I am going to check again today
also how can I tell if my calipers are binding?
disc-quiet won't help from the rotors and my rims to heat up thog ...
I just want to know how come it is heating up so fast
it is not like I am driving my car like a crazy person

it could be that the calapers are ****ed and with the new pads they are actualy pushing on the disk the whole time is it kinda stiff 2 push over the rotor ??
