hey guys im a noob when it comes to brakes/bearings. this is my first time working with either one. but i jacked up BOTH wheels today on my 94 silverado and spun both of them and they spin freely for about 5 seconds then stop and they make a grinding noise.. so i took the wheel off and notices BOTH rotors were rubbing the brake pads and they were very hard to spin. they wernt wobbling or anything just rubbing, is this normal?! thanks guys

if they are new, its normal. It should go away in the first drive. Check if they heat up, drive the vehicle then spit on it, if the saliva boils, then the cylinder is stuck and is preventing the brake pad to open.
