Are you sure it is the brakes?
If the brakes were involved- then the work clearly
was a butcher job- at best

I assume you mean that you replaced the front pads and rear shoes. Or did you also replace the disks and drums?? Either way you should be ok unless you also replaced the slave cylinders on the rears.
The fluid flows back up to the Master Cylinder as you squeeze the calipers and the slaves to fit the new parts in. Some people pre-fill the caliper to reduce the amount of air and make bleeding easier.Now .....Grinding better be a wrong choice of words. Possibly you spilled fluid on the pads while bleeding the lines. This will cause a binding and shuddering when you apply brake pressure. This will also make you think the lines are not bled properly because of the increased pedal pressure you are putting on the wet/lubricated front pads. If so, replace the pads. Don't try washing them with aerosol cleaner cause it takes more time and money than simply changing them.

Rear disc brakes? My '04 KT2500 HD used similar "floating" rotors. Also, be sure to clean up or replace the metal guides the new pads ride on, mine have stuck and caused severe wear on the inside of the rotor, while the outside pad had minimal wear. I used a file to smooth up the notches on the pads and some steel wool to clean up the salvageable clip-on guides. Check the steel brake lines while you are down there for rust/corrosion, this is an issue for these trucks.
That is if you have the same braking system as the 2500, if not these guys have a series of great videos pertaining to your specific model.
