Hope you are talking about the front brakes,First check to see if the brakes are releasing the brake rotor.If they are not,it is posible the slide on the caliper need cleaning and lubed.Also could be the brake hoses colasping,and not allowing the piston in the brake calipers to release.Did you have the rotors turned?It could have something to do with it.Also what it probley is,that when you pushed the piston back in the caliper,you didn`t remove the master cylinder top off.Bleed the right front caliper,then the left front caliper,and then the master cylinder.This should clear it up.

Whenever you have new brake pads put on it is best to have the rotors cut. Otherwise they can shudder or grab or any number of things. If the vehicle is pulling to one side or another it could be a frozen caliper. Calipers should always be replaced in pairs. As with all brake work, anything done to one side absolutely needs to be done to the other. Always purchase medium grade brake pads and shoes. Premium pads and shoes are almost always too agressive for any rotor to withstand and will generate excessive heat and premature wear. If your brakes seem like they arent releasing it is most likely the calipers.

Possibly the material of the brake pads, installed incorrect or just need to be replaced. Also is possible that the rotors need to be turned/resurfaced.

it could be the brake pads have absorbed moisture and on the first apply they grab. I would replace the pads with a better quality and see what happens. The noise your hear under the hood is the ABS pump working because the wheels are locking up .

Inspect the brake rotors for grooving and score marks and also look to see if there are any heat cracks, if there is grooving or very little brake pad material remaining replace the brake pads and also two new rotors, it is also possible that it is just a frozen or stuck brake caliper, this would be indicated by an uneven rotor one that has more metal or meat on one side that the other also uneven brake pads indicates an uneven brake caliper application
