It only makes the sound when i apply the brakes.. And overall.. Its mainly highway driving. I don't run it hard. Only occasionally when you get that urge
Blowing through rear brakes in 21K is amazing. That's low miles for the front brakes, doing most of the work.
Pretty normal for single piston brakes to wear unevenly a bit. Caliper pins need to be well-greased on those setups.
I usually knock the corners off the brake pads when I install them, if they aren't already chamfered, to cut down on noise.
It's normal to see a little rust near the rotor hat, especially after you cut the steel, it's very rust prone after that.
