Replaced brake pads on 2004 silverado now both sides are sticking

You can't put new pads on & not turn the rotors

You have to remove all rust from both sides of rotor,
wheel hub face,pad & caliper abutements,slipper,siding
surfaces & lube moving parts

There is more to brake maintenance or service than hanging
a pad as the brake places do,then you have problems

Replaced front brakes and I still hear grinding, vechile is a 2004 4wheel drive chevrolet pickup

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.

Grinding sound in front

Check your front brakes. If the fluid in the brake master cylinder is down so are the brake pads

What is the best brake pads to use on a chevrolet 2004 silverado 2500hd 4wd

if your looking for a brand there are thousands out there. but from experience, buying a ceramic brake pad will last longer and cause less noise than a semi-metallic brake pad will but it will cost you a bit more. Also, ceramic pads are more rotor friendly

Rear brakes replacement

The Rotors would have to be Grooved Beyond Resurfacing to Change them. Check and see if they have very deep Grooves. If Not you just need pads. Some Places will do this for 75.00 and others will Charge upwards of 200 to 400 Bucks for Service. Just do some Calling and Check out Prices first.
