brakes :/

well i just did my brakes and used centrics rotors, and mintex pads...(all around...4 new rotors/pads)

its been over 500 miles now, and the past week or so ive been hearing a squealing first i thought it was something else but im back to thinking its the brakes again...

it seems like it only squeels when im totally stopped and then start to at first i though it could be my clutch, but my clutch is less than a year old so i was like wtf! then when my clutch was totally dis-engaged i heard the squeal again so i was thinking it was the brakes...

im not 100% sure if it is the brakes but was wondering why my new brakes would squeel like this when i ffirst start going?

i was thinking if the brake caliper didnt release all the way, the pad could be touching the rotor too much

or maybe my ebrake cable is too tight and a rear rotor is touching too much..

any other things to check out to fix this squeel...?

anything else it might be?

FS sri, FS front/rear strut bars, CFM pulleys (3), CFM sts, CFM 67mm TB, Fidanza lw flywheel, Centerforce dual-friction clutch, RT off road pipe, TOMS TUNE!!!

it helps to have a car lift. nuff said
