The outside, outer, edge of both rotors are freshly rusted while the opposite edge looks normal. Also, the inside of the caliper where it might contact the rotor as it turns also shows slight signs of contact at the botton edge. everything seems to have good clearance not under load.
Caliper mounting bracket distorting under load...??
Should I buy/use shoulder bolts instead of the factory full threaded bolts holding the caliper mounting brackets in place or just force the bracket as far away from the rotor as I can while tightening the mounting bolts to spec...?
No more than 1/32" of slop there if even that.

Did you use O.E. brake pads when changing your brakes? If you did thats great. I always use O.E. because they don't squeak or grind. They don't cost much more( I don't think) and the difference is in the sound. I also resurface the front rotors as well. It's all depends on your mechanic. My mechanic always recommend O.E. pads when doing brakes.
