Ok, did you replace them because the brake locked up, or did the brakes lock up after replacing them?
Ok, is it just the same one locking up or have you verified that it is all 4 locking up?
Ok, I am a bit confused. If you havent put the tire back on, how do you know the brake is locked up?
Ok, open the bleeder at the caliper for about 30-40 seconds and then close the bleeder and see if the hub spins
Ok, Is the rotor flat against the hub and not angled at all?
If possible can you take a photo of the rotor and caliper from the front and then from an angle looking down at them and then use the paperclip icon on your reply box to upload them.
I believe this is going to be in how it was put back together and not an hydraulic issue
The caliper or caliper bracket is cocked at an angle and grabbing the rotor by the looks of it. Remove the caliper(leave the hose connected to it, and remove the caliper bracket. Use a lug nut hand tightened to keep the rotor straight, and then reinstall the caliper bracket, pads and then the caliper, making sure to keep the caliper and bracket straight.
