it is possible that the brake caliper on one side is locking up and causing the brakes to grind more,usually on the insdie of the rotor.also sometimes the brake hose is binding and not letting fluid into the system on one side

Answermine does that same thing but only when i back up and step on the brake. recently replaced the pads and rotors and then it didn't do it for a while but now its starting to do it again. would that be the same problem?

* Could be pads are worn with backing plate in contact with rotor.

* Could also be "chatter" where pads vibrate against rotor, A lube can be used between the pad and caliper.
