Question: Metal rubbbing sound from brakes

Just replaced my rear brakes and rotors. I hear what sounds like metal rubbing when driving and applying brakes.

The rotors show no sign of any wear on the outside.

Warped rotors will generally cause a vibration / brake pedal pulse.

More likely an installation issue, or backing plate rubbing etc
