Might be your drums. Something could be stuck in them and making it sound bad. Is it a grinding noise like when you grind your gears or is it more of a rubbing noise?

did you actually look at them carefully? or did you just look at them through your rims

Mine make the same noise. But I know its my rotors, and my rear drums are worn as well.

(I'm doing a x drilled gsr brake swap within a weeks time.)

I think Brembo blanks are less prone to warping. That's the real difference.

nothing to worry about.

check if there's meat in ur pads, and as long as ur stopping, ur good.

i think it's coming from ur brake pad shins, cause it's comin for the front, i assume u have rear drums.

make sure the shins are properly in, and if anything, squeeze some 'squeal stop' on ur pads/calipers. it's a thick gel like.

don't waste ur money bringing it to speedy.
they're gonna replace everything from ur brakes to ur rad or something stupid.

you really have to swing the caliper away from the rotor to see the whole surface of the pad to make a safe judgment of pad ware... allot of the time just looking at the edge of the pad while the caliper is normally installed gives a false impression of the actual pad ware. Maybe you are down to the metal lining.
