Did you grease the shims when you mounted the new pads?

did to put anti seize lube on the shim??

are u using oem shim?? if not that's why,those cheap vatozone shit tend to fall off and when u hit the brake it will move around.

Get some good synthetic brake lube.

Lube all the contact points on the pad, and caliper, any pins, ect.

Lube the back of the pads as mentioned above.

Cheap or improper lubricants can cook off or wash/wipe away.

When you disassemble and reinstall make sure everything is correct and not binding anywhere. Make sure all the parts/contact points are clean before you lube.
