Anytime you replace the brakes, you MUST clean the pins, slides, guides, etc, and then re-lube them. Anytime you replace, or turn the rotors, you MUST replace brake pads. You also have to check brake hardware for leaks, loose caliper, bent caliper, etc.
For better maintenance, you can apply a thin coat of anti-seize lubricant to the back of the rotors, so they don't stick to the hub. You can also apply it to all the bolts and nuts to prevent oxidation.
One more thing... turning rotors = $10-15 each, new rotors = $20-30 each. I also painted the non-contact surfaces of my rotors to prevent them from rusting so fast.
