Question: brake noise

took apart front brakes to measure pads and clean caliper slide rails @58k.Have 6mm left everything looked good but had hard time getting pads out. now after driving awhile they squeal at the point of stopping and for several rotations when starting up again.Like their not releasing all the way but not all the time.
