your floating system is stuck..they have allen screws in them..if they are froze..they won't let the front disk move all the way out to compress the disk and rotor to the outside disk..be warned..these 2 allen screws can be a pain to break loose to get it to move.

Yeah, he's talking about the pins that the caliper slides on, with the rubber boots.

Be sure to get any rust off those pins and then lube the pins with brake lube. Don't use too much grease, it might get on your brake pads or brake rotor.

Grease on the rotors makes for a bad day. but agree^^^^^ clean them up with some sand paper or emory cloth.
