there are two bolts that hold the caliper on the spindle on each side(in the front). they come off with a 3/8 allen. i would put just a little bit of grease on them and make sure that they are not bent or any thing. MAKE SURE NOT TO GET ANY GREASE ON YOUR PADS OR ROTOTRS!! i would also bleed the lines and adjust the rear shoes.

you're not kiddin around, did you grease the caliper bolts/sliders like was said before that can do it right there, and if you put new pads in, it may be hard to tell how they are wearing, but compare both sides, but also look at the top and bottom of each pad, sometimes, the piston can be bent, or crooked and push on one side of the brake pad more than the other. new calipers and lines is going to be $$$$ but might be worth it too if you are building a show car.
