Do it yourself. Take off the pads, and clean the back of them and the caliper piston face/rim. Apply goop, and reinstall.

JR. where are you buying your rotors from? I just checked and my rotors from GM are $142 a PEICE! Definately nowhere near what you paid. and my brake pads are $80. I'll try the 'goop' method first. hopefully that fixes it. If not I'll just live with it until the brakes don't work like they should. They work fine, just noisy as all hell.
BTW, my rotors are extremely shiny.. I thought they were supposed to look like that.
