the calipers were not done properly...the slides should be lubricated with special lithium grease before re-assembly. you could take one wheel off and try to squish the brake caliper back and forth on it's slides, also check to see if both pads are grabbing evenly, vented rotors are easier to see if one side had more "meat" left on there, but a sticking caliper would be dragging and actually is quite dangerous to be driving this way in slippery conditions...so yes. a sticking caliper~

After a drive, walk around and touch the wheels. If a brake is dragging or a bearing seizing up, the wheel will be hotter than the one on the other side. The fronts are always hotter than the rears because of the larger brakes.
