Replaced Brake Pads And Rotors Now Grinding Noise Really Bad.?

The car is a 2001 Mazda Protege ES
Last week i replaced the rear pads and rotors and everything went ok, i got paid today so i went and purchased the front pads and replaced them, the rotors looked fine so i didn't mess with them after i installed the pads i went for a drive and there was this horrible grinding noise from the front, i took everything off made sure everything was clean, lubricated etc. still grinding really bad.
I went and purchased new front rotors and replaced them too, still grinding, it will grind with brake pedal pressed or not.
Any suggestions?
Please do not reply if you plan to criticize me and tell me to take it to a shop, if i had the money for that i would have took it to the shop in the first place.
Any suggestions are very appreciated.
Well according to others they are not made for left and right side and yes i have them installed correctly, pad against the rotor.
@ Peckernut Well thanks for that advice that will really help me
@ Sully i bled them but i will go do it again, do you think if the back was not properly bled that could cause something ?
OK thanks to all of you guys but turns out its the wheel bearing, i probably did not hear it go out because the brakes were making noise...... Thanks to all who replied.

Best Answer

without knowing your skillz (in a respectable way), i would suggest making sure the pads are not installed backwards. friction material to the rotor. with that out of the way...
check for a rock between the rotor and the backing plate.
check the metal pad clips that clip onto the caliper and caliper bracket.
