Hubs on these cars are prone to failure, especially those that are not oem quality. If you hit any potholes or used a lower grade assembly it or they definitely could be worn again. With the grinding noise on the ground, sounds like it is putting just enough pressure on the hub to cause the rotor to have contact with the pads.

Next time you get the wheel up with the car on a jack and secured safely, rock the wheel and feel for any give. Be sure not to rock it side to side, but instead from top and bottom of the tire. To me it is easier to check the hubs with the tire off the car and feeling for any give by grasping the rotor.

My 6 year constantly asks why. What adults can learn from 5 and 6 year olds, to listen with your ears and mind open. Hard to learn when you don't listen ......
